(Worthy News) - As ISIS' territorial control erodes in Iraq and Syria, many of the more than 40,000 foreign fighters who joined the terrorist group have started to head back to the countries from which they came.

There are now at least 5,600 people from 33 countries who have left ISIS' so-called caliphate and returned home, according to a report from The Soufan Center.

Some countries have seen more returnees that others: About half of the fighters from the UK, Sweden, and Denmark have returned, while 10% of the fighters from Russia or former Soviet republics have gone back. [ Source: Business Insider (Read More...) ]
