heading to fight with Islamhc extremists.

:00:13.:00:14.

Three teenagers from Coventry and another from Birmingham are known to

:00:15.:00:17.

Parents are being urged to hnvolve police before it's too late.

:00:18.:00:23.

Here's our special correspondent Peter Wilson.

:00:24.:00:27.

These are the images filling the internet

:00:28.:00:31.

And now, young men with British accents are calling their friends to

:00:32.:00:39.

This was why an extraordinary meeting was held

:00:40.:00:43.

So that the militia groups have control over them,

:00:44.:00:48.

they will take their passports, they will confiscate their loney

:00:49.:00:52.

and their travel documents, which means, that in some cases, they are

:00:53.:00:55.

Therefore, those militia groups can tell them to do whatever

:01:44.:01:45.

:01:46.:01:49.

:01:50.:01:53.

I think people think the only way they can help hs to go

:01:54.:01:56.

But, really and truly, the reality is, they do not need to

:01:57.:02:01.

go and fight, they don't nedd to go over there and pick up a gun.

:02:02.:02:04.

For some young men, travellhng to Syria seems a great adventure.
