London: British Foreign Secretary William Hague has said Britain has become the ‘No 1 destination’ for Islamists extremists seeking to hijack the popular uprisings across the Arab world.

Hague warned that Brits fighting Bashar al-Assad regime in Syria could return to carry out terrorist attacks in the UK.

According to the Daily Star, he also said that battle-hardened militants could soon pose a threat in the West.
He said that this includes individuals connected with the United Kingdom. They may return ideologically hardened, with experience of weapons and explosives, the report added.
