The United Nations Security Council plans to demand that countries “prevent and suppress” the recruiting and travel of foreign fighters to join extremist groups such as Islamic State by making sure that such actions are considered serious criminal offenses under domestic laws. The United States circulated a draft resolution on the matter that it hopes will be unanimously adopted by the 15-member Security Council. The measure would require that nations make it illegal for their citizens to travel abroad, collect funds, or facilitate the travel of other individuals overseas with the purpose of planning, preparing, or participating in terrorist acts. UN diplomats told Reuters the council will likely agree on a resolution. The U.S., Britain, and other nations are increasingly concerned about hundreds of foreigners traveling to the Middle East to join ISIS.
