The lawyer for Shamima Begum, who fled from the UK as a schoolgirl to join the Islamic State group, has called for an inquiry – after reports that she was smuggled into Syria by a Canadian intelligence agent.

Ms Begum, who has denied being involved in any terror activities, has launched a legal challenge – as her lawyers said she was a victim of trafficking.
