43 British women and girls in Syria, say police
by Dominic Casciani
UK counter-terrorism chiefs say 43 UK women and girls are believed to have travelled to Syria in the past year.
The Metropolitan Police figures are the first official count of British women thought to be in the warzone.
Security officials believe up to 700 people have gone to Syria to become involved in jihadist groups and about half have returned.
