Britain will propose new laws on Tuesday that would require airlines to seek permission to carry passengers who may be intending to travel to join militant fighters in Syria. These "high-risk" travellers, including minors, will be flagged by an automatic system so the Home Office can stop them from boarding planes. The new laws are part of an effort by Britain to stop would-be terrorists from joining militant groups and returning to the country to commit terror acts, and comes after it was revealed that three British schoolgirls had left Britain to join the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria via a commercial flight to Turkey. - JEREMY LEE

France's lawmakers are set to debate a Bill that allows dying patients to be placed under general anaesthetic until they die, effectively letting them choose the time of their demise, as such a deep sleep cannot be reversed. The law would give those on the brink of death the power to stop their treatment and go under, but critics say it amounts to euthanasia. Supporters of the Bill, though, say that as the time of actual death cannot be determined, it is different from assisted suicide. - JEREMY LEE
