Australia issues arrest warrent for doctor recruiting in Syria

Australian police have issued an arrest warrant for an Australian doctor who has appeared in an Islamic State movement recruitment video urging Western medical professionals to join him in Syria. Tareq Kamleh is a 29-year-old Australian born and educated doctor who appeared in the video in April describing his medical work in Syria as his “jihad for Islam.” Australian Federal Police said in a statement on Thursday that Kamleh will be arrested if he returns to Australia on three terrorism charges that carry a maximum total of 45 years in prison.
