Syria Kurds hand over six Belgian orphans from IS families: official

Kurdish authorities in northeast Syria on Thursday handed to their Belgian counterparts six orphans born to families belonging to the Islamic State group, officials said.
"Six Belgian orphan children were handed over to a delegation from the Belgian foreign ministry," spokesman Kamal Akef told AFP.
"The children and Belgian delegation have arrived in their country."
Top foreign affairs official Abdulkarim Omar, using an alternative acronym for IS, earlier said the "children from ISIS families" were repatriated "at the request of the Belgium government".
