LONDON - Nine British medical students have travelled to Syria, apparently to work in hospitals controlled by Islamic State, Britain's Observer newspaper reported on Saturday.



The group of four women and five men crossed into Syria from Turkey last week, having travelled from Sudan where they had been studying, said the story, published on the website of the Observer's sister paper, the Guardian.



It quoted Turkish opposition politician Mehmet Ali Ediboglu, who had met members of the students' families who were trying to persuade the students to return.
