A delegation of ultra right-wing European politicians began a previously unannounced "fact-finding" mission in Syria on Tuesday to assess the presence of foreign fighters in the war ravaged country, a spokesperson for a British MEP said.

Nick Griffin, Member of the European Parliament from the British National Party, has taken part in the delegation which is meeting with Syrian officials to gauge the extent of involvement of European-based extremists, his spokesperson Simon Darby told Al-Akhbar.

"Specifically, we're looking for evidence of UK-based jihadists fighting for the Free Syrian Army, and of covert weapons shipments to Syria," Darby said, adding that the trip would last "a few days."

He said arrangements for the visit had been organized between several other politicians from Belgium, Russia and Poland at the invitation of Syriaâ
