UPDATE 3-Turkey starts repatriating Islamic State detaineesTurkey said on Monday it had deported two captives from Islamic State — a German and an American — beginning a programme to repatriate detainees that has caused friction with its NATO allies since it launched an offensive in northern Syria.
