EFD Senior Policy Advisor Lorenzo Vidino is quoted in Switzerland's daily Aargauer Zeitung in an article on the ease with which Swiss jihadists can access the civil war in Syria.

"It has never been easier for radicals to fight in the name of jihad", he says. "If they want to, they can board a budget flight to southern Turkey in the morning. All being well, they will be on the boarder to Syria that very evening."
