Posted In: News Date:Sep 19th, 2017

Iraq is set to deport 500 women who were foreign members of the Islamic State militant group (ISIS), along with their children, an official said on Monday, as authorities moved them to a detention center in preparation for their departure.

Iraqi authorities moved the women and children from a facility south of Mosul to the center, north of the city. 

"They are in a holding center in Tal Kayf under the control of Iraqi security forces, so their cases can be examined before they are eventually expelled from the country," a provincial councillor from Nineveh, the region where Mosul is located, told the AFP news agency on condition of anonymity.
