(CNN)More than 20,000 foreigners have flocked to fight for ISIS, the radical Sunni group that controls portions of Iraq and Syria.


They hail from 90 countries, and an estimated 3,400 fighters come from Western states, according to Nicholas Rasmussen, the director of the National Counterterrorism Center.

Those are the numbers; albeit, they're estimates.

But who is actually going? What are their names? What do they look like, where are they from and -- perhaps most importantly -- why are they going?

These are some of the individuals we know have traveled or tried to join ISIS.

United States



U.S. officials say more than 150 fighters have traveled from America to join the militant group. We don't yet know the identity of any Americans who have successfully made it to ISIS-controlled lands, but we do know the identities of a handful of people who have been accused of trying.

On Wednesday, three men from New York -- Abdurasul Juraboev, 24; Akhror Saidakhmetov, 19; and Abror Habibov, 30 -- were arrested and charged with conspiring to provide material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization. An unsealed criminal complaint accused two of the men of discussing a potential attempt to assassinate President Barack Obama. One of the men had discussed hijacking a flight and handing it over to ISIS, the complaint said.

Four women from Colorado have been accused of attempting to join ISIS. Three Denver teenagers, who investigators say were recruited via social media, were stopped in Germany last October and sent back to the United States. After being arrested in spring 2014, Shannon Maureen Conley was one of the first Americans sentenced for conspiracy to support ISIS.

Two men who have appeared in horrific ISIS propaganda videos could be from the United States or Canada, according to analysts. The individuals -- both of whom are shown wearing masks covering everything but their eyes -- spoke in what sounded like North American accents. One was in a video entitled"Flames of War," which shows the execution of a handful of men. The other militant is the speaker in ISIS' first propaganda video out of Libya, which ends with the graphic beheading of more than a dozen Egyptian Christians.
