Mr Stewart, who's the minister for international development and has extensive experience in Afghanistan and Iraq, said in a BBC interview that there were difficult moral issues, but most fighters expected to be killed.

Anybody who is an enemy combatant, British or otherwise, needs to be treated in accordance with the rules of war and in accordance with the law."
