Prime Minister David Cameron Monday announced plans to strip suspected Islamist militants of their passports temporarily, to combat the threat posed by radicalized Britons returning from Syria and Iraq.The proposals come days after Cameron raised Britain's terrorism alert to its second-highest level, saying ISIS militants in Syria and Iraq posed the country's greatest-ever security risk.Cameron said he would bring in new "specific and targeted legislation" to give the police powers to temporarily seize a suspect's passport at the border to give authorities time to investigate them.Currently only Britain's interior minister has the power to withdraw a passport.
