Police in Syria appeal to UK Muslim women

A leading police officer has urged the wives and mothers of young Muslims to try to prevent them joining anti-government forces in Syria.

The new head of the West Midlands counter-terrorism unit warned anyone involved in fighting in Syria was likely to be arrested on their return.
