Arrest warrants have been issued for Australians accused of fighting with Islamic State, sparking fresh calls for women and children stranded in Syria to be brought home.
Women trapped in northern Syria’s al-Hawl refugee camp are expected to face charges of travelling to a declared zone and supporting or joining a terrorist group.
But the Australian Federal Police warrants will only be served if the women are repatriated.
“The Australian Federal Police, working with domestic and international partners, has obtained 42 arrest warrants relating to persons of interest to counter-terrorism operations,” a spokesman told AAP.
