Three Sudanese children were reunited with their extended family in Sudan on Tuesday after their parents, who had joined the ISIL terrorist group, had been killed in Libya.
Three of the children, who had spent three years in a child care house in Tripoli, hail to the family of fighter Mohamed Abuzaid, who had been killed while fighting with ISIL in Libya.
“They have been returned to Sudan to reunite with their extended family," lawyer Adel Abdul Ghani said.
He said Sudanese security organs and the Red Cross have played a major role in rescuing the children and returning them back to Sudan.
Abuzaid was detained in Sudan in 2008 for involvement in the killing of a U.S. diplomat. He fled prison in 2011 and travelled to Somalia, where he joined Al-Shabaab militant group.
He later left Somalia to Libya and joined ISIL terrorist group in the troubled North African country.
His brother Mohamed Abuzaid had also joined ISIL in 2014.
There are no official estimates of how many Sudanese have joined ISIL, but unofficial estimates put their numbers at hundreds.
