A common Islamist extremist trope is that foreign forces are invaders which must be chased out: that is why they attack them.

Many people turn to religion in times of need and we are in such a time with the coronavirus crisis.

If you commit a crime in a foreign country that country has the right to arrest, try, convict, and imprison you (or execute you for a capital offence). Why should terrorists be any different?
