What should we do with returning ISIS fighters? CNN Talk with Max Foster

    • News & Politics

In the vast expanses of eastern Syria, tens of thousands of people sit in camps, their fate unknown and undetermined. Many of them are citizens of western countries who were captured in the last days of the ISIS caliphate. Some were fighters, others are wives of fighters, and some are innocent children born inside ISIS territory. So what should be done with them? Should they face justice inside Syria, or their home nations? Or are the wives and children victims in all this, deserving of repatriation and protection? As the issue comes back into the headlines, Max Foster anchors a conversation with CNN's own Ben Wedeman, who spent 55 days covering the fall of ISIS inside Syria. Also joining them at the CNN Talk table are Iain Martin and Linda Yueh.
