France presented a bill Wednesday aimed at strengthening anti-terrorism laws to stop increasing numbers of aspiring jihadists from traveling to fight in Syria.The new bill, presented by Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve to the council of ministers, came as a 48-year-old woman was charged under anti-terrorism laws after visiting Syria thrice where her son is fighting.It includes a ban on foreign travel of up to six months for individuals suspected of being radicalized, and gives authorities powers to temporarily confiscate and invalidate their passports. The proposed bill said the ban would be decided by the interior minister himself and could be extended as long as is necessary.The French government is deeply concerned about the radicalization of its nationals after hundreds of citizens have gone to fight with jihadists in Syria.
