In an interview with the BBC's Middle East correspondent, Quentin Sommerville, Ms Begum said she is ready to face prison if it means returning from a Syrian refugee camp to the United Kingdom with her baby boy, who was born on Saturday.

"I actually do support some British values and I am willing to go back to the United Kingdom and settle back again and rehabilitate", she told the BBC on Monday.

Later she likened the deaths of 22 innocent people in the terrorist attack on an Ariana Grande concert in 2017 to the "women and children" being bombed in Baghuz, where Isil fighters are now making their last stand. It's a two-way thing really.

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 schoolgirl, who ran away to Syria to join ISIS as a 15-year-old in 2015, could expect to be "spoken to" if she comes back to Britain. "Their justification was that it was retaliation so I thought, okay, that is a fair justification".

Massive haul of drugs headed for Australia seized at LA/Long Beach Seaport
Police believe the Mexican cartel has links to Australian-based outlaw bikie gangs but would not give further detail. The drugs were detected by USA authorities on January 9 with 25kgs of cocaine and 5kgs of heroin also located.

Police found extremist material on her devices, including a video of a target said to be linked to the royal family.

Tasnime Akunjee, solicitor for the families of the Bethnal Green girls, has said he would like an assessment on Begum's mental health and blamed her radicalisation on Tower Hamlets Council, Bethnal Green Academy and the Metropolitan Police.

Hoda Muthana, 24, regrets ever aligning herself with the terrorist organization and is putting herself at risk by speaking out against it from a refugee camp where she has lived since fleeing the group a few weeks ago, said attorney Hassan Shibly.

An Alabama woman who left home to join the Islamic State after becoming radicalized online wants to return to the United States. Everything I've been through, you know. Who is there to guide her, talk to her?

He wrote that the 19-year-old should "rot in hell" after marrying the "the world's worst terrorists" and that neither of them should be allowed to return to their home countries.

Venezuela sanctions leave oil market short of heavy crude
Those fears dissipated after Washington eventually granted waivers allowing several countries to continue to import Iranian oil. It also slightly downgraded its forecast for growth in global demand in 2019 from 1.29 million barrels per day to 1.24 million.

"My message to both these brides, and any others like them, is this: You made your ISIS husband beds, now you can rot in hell in them". I know a lot of people, after they saw that me and my friends came, it actually encouraged them.

Isis claimed responsibility for the bombing by Salman Abedi on May 22, 2017, which killed children as young as eight and wounded 139 people, saying it was in response to "transgression" against Muslims.

Now key questions remain - will she be allowed to return and can she readjust?

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.
