Belgium told to bring back ISIS mother, children from Syria

Belgian authorities have been ordered to repatriate a woman who joined the "Islamic State of Iraq and Syria" (ISIS) and her two children from the camp in Syria where she is being held, a lawyer for her family said Thursday (October 31st).

The Belgian government has 75 days to bring back the 23-year-old Belgian woman and her children from the al-Roj camp controlled by Kurdish fighters under the order issued by a Brussels court, the lawyer, Nicolas Cohen, told AFP, confirming a report on Belgian state television.

The ruling lays bare a debate in Europe over the fate of European citizens who left to join ISIS and who are now being held in camps in Syria and Iraq following ISIS's defeat.

The Kurdish fighters controlling the camps, and the US, have urged the European countries to take back their citizens to face justice.
