Tracking Britain’s jihadists
“At least 700 people from the UK have travelled to support or fight for jihadist organisations in Syria and Iraq, British police say. About half have since returned to Britain. Most of those who went to the conflict zone are thought to have joined the militant Islamist group that calls itself Islamic State.
A BBC News team has been investigating the stories of these people. This database details what we know about those who have died, been convicted of offences relating to the conflict or are still in the region. The information on these pages has been compiled from open sources and BBC research. In some cases, the BBC has not been able to confirm specific details relating to the identity of an individual. Some details have been withheld for legal reasons.
