Helen Ball, the senior national coordinator for counter-terrorism policing, told a news conference she has met families "torn apart" by the deaths of British men who had died after travelling to the country.
"Meeting today with a range of women from communities, charities and other organisations has been tremendously valuable to start to think really carefully about how women in particular can challenge the lure and motivations of people travelling [to Syria]", she added.
