Cruise Ships: Foreign Fighters Transport Undetected

In response to the risks associated with traveling by air, Interpol assesses that foreign fighters have utilized cruise ship terminals’ inconsistent security regulations to travel to Syria and Iraq undetected. Interpol and the US Coast Guard (USCG) have responded to this information with a new program and proposed set of guidelines – aiming to dissuade foreign fighters from this method of transport.
