UK teens 'heading for Syria' released on bail

Turkey has long expressed irritation over the repeated criticism from the West that Ankara is not doing enough to stop jihadists and their sympathisers crossing into SyriaThree British teenagers suspected of trying to travel to Syria were released on bail after being questioned for 24 hours on suspicion of preparing acts of terrorism, police said. Two 17-year-old boys from northwest London and a man aged 19 were detained by authorities in Turkey on Friday and were deported to Britain on Saturday, where they were promptly arrested by counter-terrorism officers. “They have been bailed to return to a central London police station pending further enquiries,” a spokesman for London’s Metropolitan Police announced late Sunday. The dramatic events come just weeks after three schoolgirls left London to join Islamic State militants in Syria, the latest of an estimated 600 Britons believed to have made the journey since the Syrian conflict began.
