Foreign ISIS fighters could face Nuremberg-style trials in Iraq after Western governments washed their hands of their jihadi citizens

Foreign ISIS fighters could face Nuremberg-style trials in Iraq as Western countries refuse to allow them to return to their homelands.

The Kurdish government in Syria said if Britain and other European countries will not take back their jihadi citizens, then international tribunals similar to the ones used to convict Nazi’s after the Second World War could be set up to deal with the problem.

It comes as Iraq announced a group of 13 French citizens accused of fighting for ISIS are to be tried in the country rather than face charges in their home country.

All Islamic State group militants who committed crimes against Iraq will be put on trial in that country, Iraq’s president said on Monday.
