A 19-year-old woman who ran from the U.K. to join ISIS has been stripped her British citizenship. Shamima Begum left London 2015 when she was 15 to live the Islamic State. The U.K. said that anyone who joined ISIS was a terrorist and had no right to a British passport. Ms Begum was found a refugee camp in Syria earlier this week. British newspapers and TV stations interviewed her. She spoke her desire to return to her home London. She gave birth to her third child days the interviews. Her first two babies died malnutrition. Shamima got married to an ISIS fighter several weeks reaching Syria. She said she enjoyed life in the IS as a housewife.

Under international law, the U.K. cannot take anyone's passport if that person becomes stateless. The U.K. said Ms Begum is a citizen Bangladesh because her mother was born there. However, Bangladesh's ministry foreign affairs said Ms Begum is not a Bangladeshi citizen. It said there is "no question" her being allowed the country. Bangladesh is "deeply concerned" that the U.K. has called her a Bangladeshi national. Ms Begum said she only has "one citizenship". She said: "I wasn't born Bangladesh, I've never seen how can they claim I have Bangladeshi citizenship?" The U.K. said Ms Begum's baby could still be British.
