Ariana Grande concert attack was ‘retaliation’: ISIS schoolgirl

She said it was "fair justification" as a retaliation for those being killed in the Islamic State.

Muthana ditched her home in Alabama in 2014 to join ISIS in Syria, where she married several fighters and sent out tweets urging USA jihadis to "take down" President Obama and commit massacres at Memorial Day parades.

A London schoolgirl who fled to Syria to join Islamic State has described the bombing attack on an Ariana Grande concert as "retaliation".

She was heavily pregnant and living in a refugee camp when she revealed she wanted to leave Syria, and hopes her newborn son will be "looked after" if she comes home.

Shaun replied: "Because why should she have to come back here?"

The boy is her third child, after she lost the other two.

"I do feel it is wrong that innocent people did get killed. It concerns me. I suspect she was brainwashed", he is reported to have told the newspaper.

Ms Begum, who has just given birth, said she now wants the UK's forgiveness and supports "some British values". It's one thing to kill a soldier that is firing at you, it's self-defence, but to kill people like women and children, just like the women and children in Baghuz (Syria) that are being killed right now unjustly by the bombings.

Shamima Begum was interviewed by the BBC about why she joined the militant group and says one of the reasons she joined was because of the "good life" portrayed in the group's propaganda videos.

The Loose Women panelist waged in on the debate when she suggested the "safest" option would be for the 19-year-old's baby to be removed and given to another family.

"Our policy in this regard would be to repatriate them - and that's what we call on all countries to do who have [ISIS] fighters in Syria", Deputy Spokesperson Robert Palladino told reporters when asked about Muthana, although he declined to weigh in on her case specifically.

"He has no proof that I was a threat other than that I was in Isis, that's it".

"These ISIS brides are as unspeakable as those ugly women who write love letters to notorious serial killers in prison". I know a lot of people, after they saw that me and my friends came, it actually encouraged them. Since she has been there, her two older children have died.

United Kingdom authorities now face the hard question of what to do if Shamima manages to return to Britain.

But a different fan sounded a note of caution, remarking: "I think this is such a worrying topic to address on Instagram".

Her family's lawyer, Tasnime Akunjee, 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.
