“Mother” who tried to move family to Syria ordered to give up children

MotherThree children have been taken out of their mother’s care after a high court judge concluded she had planned to take them to an area of Syria controlled by Islamic State.

A mobile phone belonging to the woman seized after her arrest last summer at Birmingham Airport contained images of children carrying firearms and wearing balaclavas bearing the Isis emblem, it also emerged.

A written ruling in the case was published on Tuesday after Leicester city council had asked a judge to make one on the futures of the three children, who are aged between four and 12, at a hearing of a family court in the city.

Mother? No. Monster.
