The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) has confirmed they are investigating whether a man from Northern Ireland has travelled to Syria.

It follows reports earlier in the week that a man from Londonderry joined rebel forces in the country.

The BBC understands the enquiries follow searches at a house in Melmore Gardens in Creggan on Thursday night.

It is believed mobile phones were removed from the house.
