This is the text (if you need help).

Britain took away the citizenship of a woman who joined ISIS. Shamima Begum, 19, left London when she was 15. The U.K. said any ISIS member could not have a U.K. passport. Journalists found her in a Syrian refugee camp. She wants to go home to London with her new-born baby. She said she enjoyed life in the IS.

The U.K. said Begum is a citizen of Bangladesh because her mother was born there. Bangladesh said it will not let her into the country. Bangladesh is angry the U.K. called her Bangladeshi. Begum said she is British. She said: "I wasn't born in Bangladesh, I've never seen Bangladesh." Ms Begum's baby could still be British.
