Alabama woman who joined Islamic State seeks return to US

"Who's there to guide her, talk to her - why is she so lost within her soul that she thinks that's the answer to go to Syria?"

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick said counter-terror detectives will "deal with whatever they are confronted with" if 19-year-old Shamima returns to the UK.

An Alabama woman who left home to join the Islamic State after becoming radicalized online wants to return to the United States.

However, Denise argued: "I do believe the baby should be taken from her and I believe the baby should be placed with a family that has nothing to do with that family".

She left east London along with two other teenage girls in 2015 to join Islamic State in Syria, but now wants to return home.

She was partly inspired by videos of fighters beheading hostages and partly by other propaganda films showing the "good life" IS could offer.

Shamima Begum, who yesterday gave birth to a son and begged to return to the United Kingdom, was one of a group of schoolgirls from Bethnal Green who went to Syria to marry IS fighters in 2015.

And Dyer, who plays Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter in the BBC soap, said: 'I don't understand what's gone on there and now she wants to come back'.

The schoolgirl who fled London to join the Islamic State group has said there was "fair justification" for the Manchester Arena terrorist attack and that they were a "retaliation" for attacks on IS. I don't know how I would be seen as a danger.

"It's one thing to kill a soldier, it's fine, it's self-defence", she told the BBC while comparing the bombing to military assaults in Syria.

She told the broadcaster: "I do feel that it's wrong that innocent people did get killed. So I thought I was a fair justification".

"If there is insufficient evidence for a prosecution it is our job to look at the threat they pose if they are returning from Syria and we do that with every single person who comes back from Syria and then manage the risk with colleagues in the (security and intelligence) agencies". I know a lot of people, after they saw that me and my friends came, it actually encouraged them.

The ex Hollyoaks and Emmerdale actress told followers she had "22 reasons" why the runaway teen should not be permitted to return to the United Kingdom, sharing an image of the victims of the 2017 Manchester bombings on Instagram.

Isis claimed responsibility for the bombing by Salman Abedi on May 22, 2017, which killed children as young as eight and wounded 139 people, saying it was in response to "transgression" against Muslims.

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