UK:British police to be sent to Turkey-Syrian border

World Bulletin / News Desk 

British politicians mulls to send police officers after three British students left reportedly to cross into Syria to join extremists, possibly ISIL.

The chairman of U.K.'s Home Affairs Select Committee said Britain should be out there to help Turkey to prevent foreigners crossing into Syria to join militant groups.

Surveillance video acquired by Istanbul police showed the trio at a major bus station in the city on Feb. 17. A British police team arrived in Turkey on Feb. 23 to assist investigations into the missing girls.

Committee chairman Keith Vaz gave an exclusive interview to The Anadolu Agency on Tuesday about improving cooperation with Turkey.

 "I do not think it is the job of the Turkish police and Turkish authorities to chase our citizens and this all has to be done with cooperation."

Vaz added British police officers should be out there doing this and that Britain should be doing more to help.
