Two French girls, aged 15 and 17, have been captured by a security net that authorities are using to ferret out citizens who are considering traveling to other countries to join jihads.The action is one example of how France is taking judicial action against citizens suspected of seeking careers as foreign fighters, even if they have yet to leave French soil. France also is planning to join other European countries in blocking Internet sites that espouse the jihadi cause.France also points to the suspected killer of four people at the Jewish Museum in Brussels in May, Frenchman Mehdi Nemmouche, who fought in Syria, as evidence of the need to prevent potential catastrophes.French authorities say there are some 900 people from France who have been implicated in jihad -- meaning they have taken part in one, plan to join one, or are returning from one.It has about 400 citizens who have become jihadi fighters in Syria and elsewhere, a third of whom have returned.The girls are among some 60 people being investigated in France for criminal association in relation with a terrorist enterprise.
