Security report on IS radicals attempting to transit Czech Republic


Eleven people, two of them Czech nationals, left the country in the course of last year to join Islamic State militants in Syria, according to an internal security report released by the Interior Ministry.

In the wake of the defeat of IS, the Czech authorities also noted an unspecified number of IS supporters who attempted to return to different parts of Europe via the Czech Republic. This is considered a grave security risk for the continent and European intelligence services are cooperating closely to minimize the risk.
