    The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) group is on the retreat in Syria and Iraq, where their two main bases were located.

The group has boasted of its involvement in attacks on British soil, as well as other European countries. So how should those who do return to the UK be treated?
