ISIS Brides Face Legal Action at Home
The family of a British teen who fled to Syria to join the terror group in 2015 says it will challenge the U.K. government’s move to revoke her citizenship. Shamima Begum, now 19, said she wants to come home — just like American runaway Hoda Muthana, who’s reportedly ready to face justice upon her return. “Seeing bloodshed up close changed me,” she wrote in a letter obtained by OZY.
What’s the bigger picture? Whatever happens in their cases could set precedent for the more than 1,000 Westerners who’ve joined the terror group in recent years, OZY reports.
