Two Japanese May Be Prosecuted for Attempting to Join ISIS

“Tokyo Police referred two people to prosecutors for planning to travel to Syria as an anti-government group fighter,” a police spokesman told AFP. The spokesman added three other people were also referred to prosecutors but gave no further details. One of the five, according to local media, is a 31-year-old former student who planned to travel to Syria in 2014. He told police he wanted to join ISIS to work as a fighter. The other four include veteran freelance journalist Kosuke Tsuneoka and Islamic law scholar Ko Nakata, whom the student apparently consulted about travelling to Syria.
