Jihadists In Syria Believed To Have 3 Young Quebec Members

At least three young Quebecers from Laval and Montreal left the country in January to join militants in Syria, sources tell CBC/Radio-Canada.

According to early information, two of them appear to be young women from Laval, while the third is a male from Montreal.

They are reportedly CEGEP students. 

Montreal police were informed of their disappearances two days after they reportedly took a flight from Montreal to Turkey.

The RCMP would not comment on the ongoing investigation.
