New British export: jihad. From The Scotsman, with thanks to Sr. Soph:
FOUR Britons believed to have fought alongside a Somali Islamic militia group are being held by Kenyan police….
Somalia’s deputy prime minister also claimed that some financial support for the Islamic militant movement in his country was coming from the UK.
A spokeswoman for the British Embassy said: “We had confirmation from the Kenyan authorities that they are holding four British nationals.
“We continue to press urgently for consular access so that we can confirm their nationality and offer every assistance.”
The Britons were among a group of ten foreign nationals held, including two Americans, one of whom is wanted in the US for links to radical movements.
