Where Boys Grow Up to Be Jihadis

Le quartier de Jamaa Mezuak à Tétouan serait un terrain fertile d'export de moujahidines pour l'Irak, entre autres, d'après Andrea Elliott, journaliste au NY Times et prix Pulitzer pour sa série de reportages sur l'Islam en Amérique.
"Since the start of the war, a few thousand foreign jihadis have heeded the call to join militant networks in Iraq. Most are men in their 20s.
