Islamic State woman can return to UK to challenge loss of citizenship

A London schoolgirl who travelled to Syria to join Islamic State should be allowed to return to the United Kingdom to challenge the deprivation of her British citizenship, senior judges have ruled.


Shamima Begum (20) travelled to Syria in February 2015 and lived under the rule of Islamic State, also known as Isis, for more than three years before she was found, nine months pregnant, in a Syrian refugee camp in February last year.
