Tirana, 6 October 2017 (MIA) - At least 120 Albanian nationals joined the Islamic State over the past decade, with more than 20 killed at battlefields, heard a forum in Shkoder that focused on regulations and ways to identify extremists.
"No Albanian citizens left for Syria this year as a result of the legal initiatives. However, this does not mean there will not be some later. Engagement of all stakeholders, special programmes and policies are a necessity", said representatives of the Helsinki Committee.
According to them, treatment of individuals returning from battlefields, but also their families, is still a problem.
Albania has adopted a national strategy for fight against violent extremism and a law banning Albanian citizens to take part in foreign armies. ik/08:25
