Al Qaeda linked groups in Syria may be trying to recruit Americans who travel to the country.

FBI Director James Comey said the development is one of his greatest concerns.

Comey told reporters dozens of Americans have traveled to Syria to take part in the civil war. While there Syrian militants have been teaching them terrorism techniques to use once back in America.

Comey said the FBI is devoting resources to find Americans who may have been recruited.
