A judiciary spokesman says Iraq has handed over 188 Turkish children of suspected Islamic State militants to Turkey.

Judge Abdul Sattar Bayraqdar says Wednesday’s handover took place at the Baghdad airport, in the presence of representatives from the Turkish and Iraqi governments and international organizations.

A statement from the spokesman says there were also a few adults in the group handed over. They were been convicted of illegally crossing the border and have served out their sentences.

Thousands of foreigners — including hundreds of children born from parents who lived under or fought with the Islamic State group — have been caught in Iraq’s justice system.

Iraqi President Barham Salih made a brief visit to Turkey on Tuesday and held talks with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan.
