Shamima Begum can return to UK to fight decision to remove her British citizenship


Shamima Begum, who was one of three east London schoolgirls who fled to Syria to join the extremist Islamic State group in 2015, has won a legal battle to be allowed to come home to challenge the government’s decision to strip her of her British citizenship.

The Home Office described the ruling as very disappointing and is seeking permission to appeal. .
