The Paris prosecutor's office said on Wednesday that Anne Clain, her husband Mohamed Amri and their four children were transferred from Turkey to France a day earlier.

Anne Clain is a sister of a French convert, Fabien Clain, who has moved to Syria and joined the ranks of the ISIS. He was the voice on a recorded, French-language, ISIS claim of responsibility for the November 13 Paris attacks.
