Minister for Foreign Affairs Timo Soini says that roughly 100 people from Finland have joined the IS troops. About 20 of them have died. The news was first reported by Ilta-Sanomat. The police have been able to confirm a figure of 70 people, but in reality more have joined the IS. According to Minister Soini, Finland must prepare for the possible return of the fighters. Finland naturally wants to stop them from doing anything radical or from recruiting others.
