Australia leader talks down hopes of repatriating terrorists

Australia’s prime minister has talked down the possibility of homesick Australian foreign fighters returning from the battlefields of Iraq and Syria, warning that they could pose a threat at home. The Australian newspaper reported Tuesday that at least three Australians suspected of fighting with terrorists in Syria were secretly negotiating with the Australian government to come home. Robert Stary, a lawyer for one of the three, said the government should regard his client as a valuable resource to help de-radicalize young Australians.
