After Wednesday's deadly attack against the Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris, the Swedish government is hurrying to fortify its efforts to prevent and be prepared for terrorism, Swedish Radio News reports.

The government started an inquiry in December into the idea of legislating against "terrorism-journeys", and that law is expected to be introduced already this year. So far, at least 110 Swedes have travelled to Syria and Iraq to work with al-Qaida-inspired groups, like IS, according to the Swedish intelligence service, Säpo.

"We're definitely going to take several measures during the next days and weeks to fight terrorism and combat the opportunities to go abroad and fight. So that we can find out who is going and be able to possibly prosecute them when they come back," says Minister of Home Affairs, Anders Ygeman to SR.
