Australia grandmother in emotional reunion with ISIS fighter's orphans

Khaled Sharrouf the childrens' father has died along with his wife Tara Nettleton

Khaled Sharrouf the childrens' father has died along with his wife Tara Nettleton

ABC's Four Corners captured the moment Karen Nettleton saw Zaynab, Hoda and Humzeh Sharrouf and her two great-grandchildren for the first time since they were taken by their mother, Tara Nettleton, to Syria to join their father.

Morrison said he had given instructions to officials that "no Australian would be put at risk in terms of going into what is a very unsafe part of the world". He was a despicable individual.

"They experienced diverse recruitment pathways, they have held various roles in Islamic State ranging from passive citizens, to child brides and even combatants".

Morrison said the case of Sharrouf's children will be dealt with "on its merits but in every single case, we will be putting the security of Australians at the top of the list". "I want to live a normal life", she said.

"There are processes to be followed and there's still a long way to go on these things".

"These kids should not be a political football", Shorten told reporters.

"When they might be in a position to return to Australia, we will cooperate with that process", he told reporters. Their parents took them into a regime of terrorism.

According to the ABC, the Federal Government said it would not help to evacuate any Australian children of Islamic State fighters from Syria, but told Karen if she can get them out of Syria, it would help from there.

Mrs Nettleton has not seen her grandchildren since 2014.

"The Australian government is dealing with the Red Cross, but it's going very, very slowly".

Shorten suggested the children would have suffered "a fair bit of trauma", adding that they would "need a lot of room and a lot love".

"This image... is really one of the most disturbing, stomach-turning, grotesque photographs ever displayed - of a seven-year-old child holding a severed head up with pride and with the support and encouragement of a parent", then US Secretary of State, John Kerry, says on the program.

"Just because their last name is Sharrouf, doesn't mean they are monsters", Nettleton said.

"If we risk bringing them back without having mechanisms in place it could pose a security threat in the future", she said.

In 2015, several Yazidi women who accused Sharrouf of enslaving them said they looked after his children as part of their enslavement and warned the youngsters were absorbing the barbaric life around them.

The grandmother has been pushing to get her grandchildren back to Australia.

"Where there are Australians who are caught up in this situation - particularly as innocent children - we will do what I think Australians would expect us to do on their behalf".

Nettleton said she was told by Australian authorities that the family had to cross the border to Turkey before Australian officials would help them.
