Sweden's security police "SAP" said that  at least 75 people have left the country to join al-Qaida-linked groups fighting in Syria since mid-2012.

Those who travel from Sweden are mainly men aged between 18 and 30. Many are new recruits, who haven't been involved with militant Islamist groups before.

In April SAPO said it believed around 30 fighters had left Sweden for Syria.
