Muslim women 'mistrust' police

An appeal by British police to Muslim women to stop men from travelling to Syria may be mistrusted, according to a community leader.

British counter-terrorism police have made an appeal to Muslim women to try and stop men travelling to Syria to possibly fight.

But Mussurut Zia from the Muslim Women's Network UK said that there was so much mistrust of the police in her community that many people would be too afraid to report friends and family to authorities.
