The two women and two men would face a travel ban and an asset freeze in a bid to discourage others leaving Britain to join the jihadist group, which has seized control of large areas of Syria and Iraq. “We will do all we can to stop British citizens from going to fight for ISIL,” a spokesman for Prime Minister David Cameron said, using another term for Islamic State.
