Australia's prime minister said Wednesday he felt for the five children of an Australian-Lebanese convicted terrorist in the ISIS movement who became notorious last year for posing for photographs while clutching the severed heads of Syrian victims.But Prime Minister Tony Abbott would make no promises that his government would help repatriate the young family from the Middle East following the father's reported death, saying that keeping Australia safe was his first priority. Reports that the children's Australian father Khaled Sharrouf, 33, and his Australian friend Mohamed Elomar, 30, had been killed in airstrikes have intensified calls from relatives for Australian help to bring the family home. Sharrouf's eldest child was married to Elomar at the age of 13 .Australian police issued arrest warrants for Sharrouf and Elomar on terrorism offenses days after their photos with severed heads emerged.
