Following the defeat of the Islamic State in Syria, Australian politicians are faced with a new dilemma: should citizens who travelled to Syria to join the terrorist group be allowed back into the country?

Notorious Islamic State fighter Khaled Sharrouf and wife Tara Nettleton travelled to Syria with their five children in 2014.

With their parents and two brothers dead, the three remaining Sharrouf children, 17-year-old Zaynab, 16-year-old Hoda and eight-year-old Humzeh, want to return to Australia.

Liberal Democrat Senator Duncan Spender believes they should be allowed to do so.

He joined Karl O’Callaghan on Sunday afternoon to discuss the issue.
