France targets Syria recruits with new law
« on: July 09, 2014, 05:01:25 PM »
France plans to ban citizens suspected of links to armed groups from leaving the country in a new bill aimed at strengthening "anti-terrorist" legislation.

The draft bill unveiled on Wednesday would allow authorities to stop French nationals from travelling if they were suspected of having links to banned groups.

It would also allow investigators to question and charge people, known as "lone wolves", with individual plans to commit violence.

The government says it is concerned about preventing attacks by individuals returning from the civil war in Syria.

About 600 French nationals are in Syria to fight with rebel groups or are planning to go there, according to the Interior Ministry.

The plan is to be presented to the parliament in the coming weeks with an aim for a vote by the end of the year.

The fastest way to a man's heart? Inch to the right of the breastbone, between the fourth and fifth rib.

Every time I start to feel boring, I remember there is a monthly magazine devoted to elevators.
