‘Jihadi bride’ arrested at Heathrow with her baby is the first to return to UK with a child born under ISIS in Syria

A suspected jihadi bride who returned to the UK having given birth to a child under Islamic State rule in Syria has been bailed after she was arrested at Heathrow.

The woman, 27, whose identity has not been revealed arrived on a flight from Addis Ababa and was arrested on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts under section 5 of the Terrorist Act 2006.

It is thought this is the first case of its kind involving a mother and a child born into the ISIS regime.

MI5 has previously said around 850 extremists from Britain travelled to the Middle East as ISIS took control of pockets of Syria and Iraq.
