ISIS slag Shemima Begum’s terrorist husband says the couple should be allowed to go and live in the Netherlands

The Dutch husband of Shemima Begum wants to bring her and their newborn child to live with him in The Netherlands.

Yago Riedijk, 27, joined ISIS when he was 15, and admits fighting for them, but despite being on a terrorist watch list in his native country he has not had his citizenship revoked.

Mr Riedijk is being held in a Kurdish detention centre in north-eastern Syria and faces six years behind bars if he returns home but in an interview with the BBC he claimed he rejected IS and tried to leave.
