But they are dangerous! Europe reluctant to ‘take back’ ISIS fighters as Trump demands

Trump’s call to European countries to “take back” and prosecute jihadists captured in Syria has met quite a mixed reaction, with Germany expressing legal concerns over the move and Denmark rejecting it altogether.

The bold demand was tweeted by the US president on Sunday. The options for Europe are simple – to take Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) fighters “back,” or the US and its subordinate militants in Syria “will be forced to release them.”

The call was heard, yet some countries flatly rejected it.
