Tunisia Repatriates ISIS Children from Misrata

Tripoli-based uthorities handed over to Tunisia on Thursday six Tunisian children of militants killed in the city of Sirte in 2016.

Six Tunisian children, aged three to 12 years old, along with a dozen others of different nationalities, had for three years been cared for by the Red Crescent in Misrata.

The issue was criticized by NGOs in Libya and Tunisia which accused Tunisian officials of “dragging their feet” on efforts to repatriate the children.

The Red Crescent said Thursday it met with a Tunisian delegation that traveled to Misrata to repatriate the children.
