Fourteen French nationals accused of fighting for the Islamic State group were transferred to Iraq by US-backed forces squeezing the jihadists' final Syrian bastion, an Iraqi government source told AFP Monday.

The source did not specify when the fighters were transferred and could not confirm whether they would be tried in Iraq or extradited to France.

The French embassy in Baghdad did not immediately respond to an AFP request for comment.
