Shamima begum loses bid to restore British citizenship

Shamima Begum, the British national who travelled to Syria as a schoolgirl to join ISIL (ISIS), has lost her latest legal attempt to regain citizenship. The Special Immigration Appeals Commission – a tribunal that considers appeals against government decisions to remove citizenship on national security grounds – dismissed Begum’s appeal at a hearing on Wednesday. She left London in 2015 aged 15 and, with two school friends, went to Syria, where she married an ISIL fighter and gave birth to three children, all of whom died as infants. She was stripped of her British citizenship in 2019. Shortly after, she was found in a detention camp in Syria. Al Jazeera’s Nadim Baba reports from London.
