Commission urges EU countries to fight rise of extremism

The European Commission called on member states to bump up their efforts to prevent radicalisation and extremism. In the coming years, a €20 million programme will seek to tackle extremism, especially with those young people who leave EU countries to fight in Syria or other conflict zones.
In a communication laid out by Cecilia Malmström on Wednesday, the EU commissioner for home affairs called upon member states to reinforce their efforts to prevent citizens from committing terrorist acts at home or abroad.
