Foreign Minister Julie Bishop says the return of Khaled Sharrouf’s family to Australia will only be considered after his death has been confirmed.Sharrouf and fellow Australian Mohamed Elomar are believed to have been killed in the Iraqi city of Mosul in the past week. “Once those reports have been verified, then we can deal with other circumstances, including the children,” she told the Seven Network. Good! I mean the bit about them being killed. Labor leader Bill Shorten, asked if Sharrouf’s wife should be allowed to come home, said it was “a pretty complex situation”.
“I feel very much for the children. For me the well-being of the children is what’s important,” the Opposition Leader said in Canberra.I wonder how Bill feels about the guy whose severed head was held by one of these children, photographed and posted on the media like it was a happy holiday snap. Does he feel very much for him? UPDATE:
Notorious Australian terrorist Khaled Sharrouf survived the drone attack in Syria that killed fellow extremist and friend Mohamed Elomar, it’s been reported.
Classified images captured by the US military in Al-Raqqah have confirmed the death of Sydney terrorist Elomar, the Sunday Telegraph reports. But none of the photographs suggest Sharrouf was killed in the Predator drone missile strike on an Islamic State group convoy, authorities say.Reload, regain the target and fire.
