Shamima Begum makes appeal to return to UK to appear in court


Shamima Begum, who left east London as a schoolgirl to join the Islamic State, has appealed to be allowed back into Britain to appear in court, she insists, to refute claims that she’d been involved in terrorism.

Speaking from a camp in Syria, the 22-year-old said she regretted every decision she’d made and would “rather die than go back to IS”.
