70 ISIS children to be resettled in Australia

(Canberra) The Aussie government has revealed plans to manage the return of as many as 70 children of Australian ISIS terrorists whose parents have died for the cause.  Justice Minister Michael Keenan said the government was aware of about 70 children who had either travelled with their Australian parents or have been born to Australian parents active in the conflict in Syria or Iraq. He also stated that the plan prioritises security but also looks at counselling, education and welfare and is being done "hand-in-hand" with the states, who would case-manage each child.

Coming to Australia soon
Security agencies say about 110 Australians are still fighting with terrorist groups in Iraq and Syria. At least 65, and possibly as many as 82, have been killed.
