Syria fighters 'pose no risk to UK'

A man whose three sons went to fight against the Syrian government has said British fighters will not pose a risk to the UK on their return.

Abubaker Deghayes spoke to the BBC after David Cameron said Britain could not ignore the security threat the UK faced from jihadists in Iraq and Syria.

But Mr Deghayes said there is a history of Britons fighting in foreign wars.

After one of his sons Abdullah, 18, was shot dead in Syria, police searched the family home in Saltdean.
