northern syria say they won't release the eight hundred for an eye so pfizer is being held in prison insisting it's up to individual countries to take responsibility for its citizens it also warned there aren't enough jails for the fighters captured and worry about what could happen if they skate well germany's government meanwhile says it's in talks with france and the u.s. about the return of for a nicer fight is donald trump wants european allies to take them back and put them on trial germany wants to prosecute its citizens who joined i saw but says it will be difficult to organize their repatch as speaker imran khan who is in gaza and test for us on the turkey syria border eman tell us first about the numbers of fighters and their families who are currently being held by the kurds. well according to the syrian democratic forces foreign relations committee there are some eight hundred foreign fighters that are being held in prisons in the
5:06 pm
territory now they say that those numbers are growing by the dozens every day they made a very impassioned plea saying they're not going to release them but individual countries like france britain and germany must do more to take their citizens back however they haven't broken down the numbers of fighters from individual countries and it's likely that there are going to be more fighters from non european countries chechens. iraqis as we've heard in amongst those numbers that are rather than fighters from europe itself but the kurds are also saying that they need to the international community needs to step up and take responsibility for these fighters and to bring them back home they say they really worried about and that's haq on the prison which might release those fighters back and they may well be able to regroup and start mounting attacks within the territory so they are very concerned that those fights is becoming a threat despite the fact that they're in prison and what do we know about germany
5:07 pm
being in discussion without the e.u. nations about taking these fighters back are they all on the same line. i know there's a lot of differences between all of the two countries the german interior ministry spokesman that was its press conference he told people that it was a fundamental right of every german to return back home and that was the right enshrined in german law however how are they going to get home i mean the germans haven't said that they going to send consular services people to those prisons i mentioned prisons to talk to german citizens about bringing them back and we've also heard from the brits as well the brits have said that if i still fight his wives and children can actually get to a embassy in either iraq or turkey they'll be offered consular services but they're not going to send people back into syria to be able to allow them to talk to them and to find out what exactly they need and how to bring them back britain doesn't have any kind of diplomatic representation within syria right now doesn't have an
5:08 pm
embassy within. damascus itself so although the u.s. president is putting a tremendous amount of person pressure on his european allies we still don't know how many european fights is that and what kind of number they are and how those european countries despite the fact they said ok if they can get in britain's case to an embassy we can help them and the germans said yes they can return but we don't know how that will happen and certainly the syrian democratic forces are very concerned about all of this i very worried that these ice with fighters as i've said pose a threat if they're able to escape thank you for that. nigeria's president has called for an investigation into why the country's presidential election was postponed by a week motto biharis ruling party had an emergency meeting in the capital abuja on the election commission's surprise a session to move the vote to saturday the nigerian leader criticize the commission
