Two young boys from Trinidad have been reunited with the mother they haven’t seen for four years and flown out of north-east Syria where they’d been in Kurdish custody.

The boys had been abducted and taken to Syria by their father, who’s thought to have been killed fighting for the extremist Islamic State group. But the human rights lawyer Clive Stafford Smith and rock musician, Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters, came to their rescue.
