On Monday her family's lawyer said he anticipated she would face criminal proceedings upon any return to the United Kingdom, but that it was the family's hope she would be given professional help following her experience in Syria.

Ms Begum left four years within the past vulnerable 15.

Shamima made it clear she is ready to return to the United Kingdom after being found in a refugee camp. Here, she said, she applied to "marry an English-speaking fighter between 20 and 25 years old".

While it is unclear whether Begum committed any crimes, many have focused on her apparent lack of remorse.

"I never did anything risky".

She persisted: "I had my kids, I did bear a appropriate time there". She said she had two other children during her time in Syria, who died in infancy from malnutrition and illness.

When the trio first crossed into Syria, Begum said, they were held in a couple of houses because they were suspected of being spies.

Writing in the newspaper on Tuesday, he said: "As a Christian, I can not help reflecting that if Jesus had thought like that he would never have told the parable of the Prodigal Son, which neatly marks out his teaching both from Islam and from the cold logic of secularism".

"I did have a good time there, it's just that in the end things got hard and I couldn't take it anymore, I had to leave".

The official regulations add "that s/he would not become stateless as a result of the deprivation". For starters I don't think she's being honest. "Love it attracted loads of of us".

She said in an interview with the newspaper that she had escaped from Baghuz, the last IS stronghold in eastern Syria, two weeks ago and wanted to return to the United Kingdom for her baby.

Her husband, a Dutch convert to Islam, is assumed to bear surrendered to a neighborhood of Syrian fighters.

The chief of the intelligence service MI6, Alex Younger, said that he was concerned about jihadists returning to Europe with "skills and connections that make them potentially very dangerous".

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick has signalled she could be arrested and investigated if she returns to Britain.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid, said those who left the United Kingdom to join Isis were "full of hate for our country".

Shortly after, they arrived in Raqqa, where, Begum said, she was placed in a "house for women".

She said she did not regret joining the Islamic State group, with her fate highlighting the challenges faced by Western governments on how to deal with returning IS fighters.

"But in the end she will have to answer for her actions".

Wallace made it clear his government will provide no help to her while she is in Syria, where Britain has no consular staff.

Fighting against IS forces has been continuing in north-eastern Syria, where the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) say they have captured dozens of foreign fighters in recent weeks.

A worn head of the British Navy, Lord Dannatt, backed Mr Trump's calls, asserting Britain had a "accountability" to of us who left to affix IS. "They take care of you... you're living under Islamic law".

IS has lost control of most of the territory it held in Syria and Iraq and USA president Donald Trump said on Friday he expected to announced its defeat this weekend.
