One hundred British children born to Islamic State brides remain in Syria, experts warn

Up to 100 British children may have been born to Islamic State brides in Syria, sources have suggested, creating a huge security headache for the Government, as it seeks to strip dual national jihadists of UK citizenship.

Last week Sajid Javid, the Home Secretary, announced that he had revoked the British passport of former east London schoolgirl, Shamima Begum, a decision that her Bangladeshi father has now said he supports.

But the Government was forced to concede that her son Jarrah  – who is just a week old – is a British citizen who has every right to return to the UK.
