Rise in number of suspected jihadists blocked from leaving Australia

Buildings destroyed during military operations against jihadists from the Islamic State group pictured in the city of Ramadi in Iraq's Anbar province, on February 2, 2016The rate at which suspected jihadists are being blocked from departing Australia has doubled in the past year, a report said Sunday, amid a government crackdown of its nationals travelling to Iraq or Syria to fight. The immigration department confirmed the figures to AFP but it was not clear how many of the suspected jihadists stopped from leaving the island continent were actually heading to the Middle East to fight, and some were eventually allowed to resume their journey. Canberra has been increasingly concerned about its citizens fighting with jihadist organisations such as Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, saying some 120 Australians had left the country to join such groups.
