Global News published this video item, entitled “Canadian ISIS fighters detained in Syria left in legal limbo” – below is their description.

They’re the world’s most unwanted – many are held in custody in Kurdish detention camps in northeastern Syria, including a number of Canadians.

The Canadian government has so far refused to repatriate them to face charges in Canada – and the RCMP says it’s too dangerous to travel to Syria to interview them. Instead, as Jeff Semple explains, police are gathering evidence from Global News.
