An Australian mother has been arrested boarding a plane with her four young children bound for war-torn Syria in an alleged bid to become involved in the bloody civil conflict.
Police in Sydney arrested the 29-year-woman allegedly carrying cash and camouflage clothing for her husband who was already in Syria fighting in the country’s bloody civil war.
