Prime Minister David Cameron has said he hopes Britain and France can open up a new front in the fight against violent extremism by working together to prevent the radicalization of young Muslims.

After talks with French prime minister Francois Fillon, Mr Cameron said: “I am becoming increasingly convinced it is not enough just to target violent extremism – we have to target extremism itself. We have to drain the water from the swamp in which the violent extremism grows. I am sure that Britain and France can work together on this and learn from each other.”
