Kurdish authorities in northern Syria returned eight American women and children to the United States who were captured along with Islamic State (ISIS) fighters, officials confirmed Wednesday. Abdulkarim Omar, a senior official in the Kurdish region, said the group includes two women and six children. He said they were returned at the request of the U.S. government and based on their own desire “without any pressure or coercion.” Omar didn’t identify the women and children, and U.S. officials did not immediately confirm or comment on the transfer.
