Mohammad Ali, a 28-year-old Canadian jihadist captured by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), speaks to AFP at a detention centre in the northeastern Syrian city of Hasakeh on February 10, 2019. Ali, who joined IS in 2014 under the nom de guerre Abu Turab al-Kanadi, was captured while trying to flee north into Turkey with his Canadian wife and two children. He said he had been interrogated by the American FBI, CIA and US defence officials, but never visited by a Canadian official. The Kurdish administration in northeastern Syria wants to send the prisoners back for trial, but governments in their countries of origin are often reluctant. / AFP / FADEL SENNA
