Mother who ran away to Syria with her toddler son is arrested at Heathrow on her return to Britain

A 26-year-old mother who ran away to Syria with her baby son after she became fascinated with extremist propaganda was last night arrested at Heathrow airport.

Tareena Shakil was on a flight back from Turkey with her 17-month-old son Zaheem.

She had secretly travelled to Syria last year to join Islamic State but has dramatically escaped from the extremist group after refusing to become a ‘jihadi bride’.
