The Daesh militant group is attempting to radicalize people from the Caribbean as the number of European jihadists travelling to join the group has decreased, media reported.
In January, US Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) Commander Gen. John Kelly warned that the number of extremists in the Caribbean has been on the rise in the past year.
Daesh has been designated a terrorist group and is outlawed in the United States, Russia and numerous other countries around the world.
In February, US National Intelligence Director James Clapper estimated that more than 36,000 foreign fighters from 120 countries have joined the Daesh in Syria and Iraq since 2012. Of those, about 6,600 Islamic volunteers came from western countries.
