The Swiss Justice Minister, Karin Keller-Sutter, is suggesting they be tried where they are now before being allowed to return.

She believes it would be dangerous to allow former extremists back into the country.

Keller-Sutter says all the cases have to be treated individually – and suggests the current law which covers children needs to be examined.

She says there’s a big difference between small children and a 15-year-old who’s been radicalized.
