UK citizens fighting for ISIS should be destroyed, says defence minister

British citizens fighting for ISIS should be located and killed, and not allowed back into the country, new Defence Minister Gavin Williamson said on Thursday.

"Quite simply my view is a dead terrorist can't cause any harm to Britain," Williamson told the UK media.

His interview came hours after two men were charged with a plot to kill British Prime Minister Theresa May.

Williamson became defence chief last month after Michael Fallon resigned over allegations of misconduct.
