Isis bride 'should be tried in the Middle East'

The mother-of-three, who gave birth to her third child at the weekend, left east London with two friends in 2015 to join the terrorist group.

Now, she is living in the tent-city that is al-Hol - also known as al-Hawl - a refugee camp in northern Syria some 200 miles away from ISIS's "last front" near the village of Baghouz by the Iraqi border.

European countries say they are working on how to deal with their citizens who want to come home, including investigating and prosecuting those guilty of crimes.

The fate of foreigners who joined Islamic State has become an increasingly urgent issue as USA -backed fighters prepare to capture the militant group's last stronghold in eastern Syria.

At the time when she left, her family pleaded with her to come home and in an interview with BuzzFeed, her father said she had been "brainwashed". "I don't have any weapons; I don't want to hurt anyone even if I did have weapons or anything", she said.

"She's still a young girl, who was looking after her?"

Shamima Begum left Britain for Syria at 15-years-old to support the terrorist group, but now wants to return to the United Kingdom despite admitting she has no regrets.

Begum herself has said she is happy to face prison, and while she does not yet express any open regret for her actions, she appears aware that she must face consequences.

Now, as their heartbroken families continue to survive each day knowing they will never see their loved ones again, teenager Shamima Begum - who left London to join the Islamic State in Syria and is now begging to come back to the United Kingdom to live - has described the Manchester bomb attack as being akin to the "women and children" being bombed in IS territory in Baghuz. It's one thing to kill a soldier that is fighting you, it's self-defence, but to kill the people like women and children.

"He has no proof that I was a threat other than that I was in Isis, that's it. It's made me stronger, tougher, you know". "Their [Isis's] justification [for Manchester] was that it was retaliation, so I thought, 'OK, that is a fair justification'".

"These ISIS brides are as unspeakable as those disgusting women who write love letters to notorious serial killers in prison".

I feel she needs a chance, maybe to explain what was going on. Among the general public too there has been a chorus of calls for the lack of mercy shown to Isis victims to be extended to Begum and her newborn son. I'm not going to go back and promote people to go to ISIS or anything, if anything I'm going to encourage them not to go because it's not all it seems in their videos.

United Kingdom authorities now face the hard question of what to do if Shamima manages to return to Britain.

Ms Begum's lawyer, Tasnime Akunjee, said the Government had a "moral duty" to bring Ms Begum back to the UK.
