European nations synchronise laws on Islamist ‘foreign fighters’

Image grab from a video on August 23, 2013 allegedly shows a member of a jihadist group affiliated to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, holding up the trademark black and white Islamist flag at an undisclosed locationMinisters from 47 European nations agreed for the first time Tuesday to harmonise their laws to stop so-called foreign fighters travelling to Iraq and Syria to join jihadist groups. The agreement by the Council of Europe, a pan-European rights group which includes the EU but also takes in countries such as Russia and Turkey, will make cross-border tracking and prosecutions easier. Under the agreement signed by foreign ministers, countries must criminalise acts such as "participating in an association or group for the purpose of terrorism", "receiving training for terrorism" and "travelling abroad for the purpose of terrorism".


UN to explore new Mideast peace effort with Israel

United Nations' new Middle East peace envoy, Nickolay Mladenov speaks during a press conference on April 30, 2015 in Gaza cityThe United Nations will explore options with Israel's new government for a return to negotiations on creating a Palestinian state within a reasonable timeframe, the new envoy said Tuesday.

UN efforts to revive the peace process were effectively on hold in recent months as Israel held elections and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu formed a new government that was announced last week.
