France: Twelve orphaned children of French jihadists were flown home on Monday from Syria, along with two Dutch orphans who will be handed over to the Netherlands, the French foreign ministry has said.

The latest wave of repatriations of foreigners from crowded camps in north-east Syria targeted a group of children who were “isolated and particularly vulnerable”, the French ministry said, adding that some were ill or malnourished.

They were handed over to French and Dutch officials by Syrian Kurdish authorities, according to Abdelkarim Omar, a senior Kurdish official.

The transfer is the latest small step in efforts to resolve the problem posed by the huge numbers of foreign jihadists and their families stranded in Syrian camps.
