Donald Trump has told the EU it must take back its 800 Isis fighters captured in Syria by US-backed forces and put them on trial. Trump tweeted: “The United States is asking Britain, France, Germany and other European allies to take back over 800 Isis fighters that we captured in Syria and put them on trial. “The US does not want to watch as these Isis fighters permeate Europe, which is where they are expected to go. The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) say they have cornered the remaining Isis militants in a neighbourhood of Baghuz village near the Iraqi border. These Gulf states say the Kurds deserve a place in a more federated future Syria, something Bashar al-Assad, the Syrian president, would resist.
