Who is Shamima Begum? From straight-A student to ‘stateless’ jihadi bride

Summary by Ground News
Shamima Begum, now 23, was 15 when she travelled to Syria in February 2015. Scotland Yard raised concerns that she and two friends had gone to Syria. She crossed the border with the help of a Canadian spy named Mohammed Al Rasheed. Just 10 days later she was married to a Dutchman named Yago Riedijk. They had three children together, who all later died from malnourishment or disease. Ms Begum was stripped of her British citizenship in January 2017.
