French mother sues government for letting son join Syria jihad
A French mother took the government to court on Tuesday for failing to stop her teenage son from leaving the country to join jihadists in Syria.
The boy, identified only as "B", was 16 when he left with three others from the town of Nice in southern France on December 27, 2013, giving no warning to his family.
A recent convert to Islam, he took a plane to Turkey before continuing by land to Syria. His mother, who spoke to him recently by phone, says he is still there.
