Ever wondered who kidnaps in Syria?


".... Shajul Islam, 26, appeared in court yesterday charged with his role in the gang which kidnapped and injured British photographer John Cantlie and Dutch journalist Jeroen Oerlemans in July this year.Islam, from Stratford, east London, has a first-class degree in biochemistry and trained to be a doctor at St Bartholomew's and a University of London hospital. 
He was arrested last week at Heathrow Airport and charged with a terrorism offence after arriving with his wife and one-year-old daughter...The intelligence services have previously warned as many as 100 Britons may have travelled to Syria to either join jihadi groups or to fight alongside rebel forces attacking the regime of Bashar al – Assad."
