UK jihadist mocks UN sanctions

One of four UK jihadis who has joined Islamic State has mocked the UN sanctions they have been hit with, tweeting that she's 'laughing out loud'.

Her account has since been suspended.

The four, who travelled to Syria to fight, face a global asset freeze and travel ban.

The British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond's in New York where UN talks on Syria's future are continuing: "Well we're clear that Assad cannot be part of the long-term future of Syria but we don't want to get hung up on an insistence that he has to go on the first day of a transition if that's going to stop us making progress."
