TWO Trinidadian children kidnapped and taken to Syria by their ISIS fighter father in 2014 have been reunited with their Trinidadian mother.

The boys, who were taken to live in the so-called IS “caliphate”, were able to leave Syria with the help of rock musician Roger Waters, front man for Pink Floyd, who helped their mother fly to Syria to meet them.

Several articles carried online by international news agencies yesterday said the reunion was arranged by lawyer, rights activist and founder of Reprieve, Clive Stafford-Smith, who was engaged by Waters.

Reprieve provides free legal and investigative help to the vulnerable around the world facing rendition, torture, and extra-judicial imprisonment or death.
