Calls to rescue women from Syrian camp


The father of one of the women trapped in a Syrian detention camp has begged the Australian government to rescue his daughter and grandchildren.

Kamalle Dabboussy has led a delegation from the Save the Children activists group to Canberra where he’s hoping to muster political action by meeting MPs.

Mr Dabboussy has rejected fears the women and children pose a terror threat.

Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton said some of the women have been active participants with Islamic state and bringing them home may pose “the risk of a mass casualty event in Australia”.

Activists fear time is running out before the group can be safely repatriated.
