AMMAN —AlGhad— Some 271 Daesh fighters returned from war zones in Iraq and Syria to France and all of them are subject to investigation by public prosecutors, the country's Interior Minister, Gerard Collomb, said.

In an interview with Le Journal du Dimanche, Collomb noted that the number of militants returned to France included 217 adults and 54 minors, with some of them currently in detention.

Some 700 French nationals are estimated to have fought in the Daesh terrorist group in Iraq and Syria, and like other European countries France has been wrestling with how to handle the flow of so-called returnees.
