ISIS girlfriend ‘angry, crying’ after UK rejects return to Britain


ISIS’s girlfriend, Shamima Begum, was left “angry, upset and crying” after a court ruled that she could not return to Britain to fight to regain her British citizenship.

The 21-year-old is trapped in a detention camp in northern Syria after the UK Supreme Court unanimously rejected her request to return to Britain on Friday.

The decision to block her return to Britain left her devastated. “She is very angry. And she is very upset and crying. She doesn’t want to talk to us, ”her friends told Sky News.

Begum was 15 when she and two other London schoolgirls left Britain to join the caliphate. Their citizenship was revoked on national security grounds in 2019. The other two are believed to have been killed in the clashes.

She has lost three children born since then, the last a boy born in 2019 after marrying an ISIS fighter from the Netherlands. That year, she told Sky News that her first two children died “of illness” in a camp.

Begum was spotted by ITV News on Friday after the ruling walking through the camp, wearing sunglasses, leggings and a jacket instead of the veil and tunic she has been seen in before.

He is not speaking to the press on the advice of his lawyers, who hope to continue the appeal of his revocation of citizenship.
