At least 12 students including British, Americans and Canadians have left their studies in Khartoum to join the ranks of the Islamic State (IS).
Sources at the University of Medical Sciences and Technology confirmed the students flew to Turkey where they are believed to cross the borders and join the terror group in Syria.
“We confirmed reports from multiple parties that 12 medical students at the university left for Turkey on Friday,” the dean for students Dr. Ahmed Babikir said.
Earlier on March, a group of British students of Sudanese origins left the same university to Turkey.
Seven of the 12 runaway students are British, two Canadians, one American and two Sudanese; all of them are of Sudanese origins and 3 of them are women.
The students, who are all in their final year of medical studies, are believed to be recruited by the Islamic State via some ‘agents’ inside the University.
