210: Episode 210 - Shamima Begum: ISIS & The Bethnal Green 3 - Part 2

This week Suruthi and Hannah head into a place widely regarded as one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East right now - the notorious al-Hawl camp. It's where, in 2019, a British journalist found an 18-year-old, 9-month pregnant Shamima Begum. Soon after this discovery, Shamima Begum would have her British citizenship revoked, leaving her stateless in the desert hell-hole. In the concluding episode of this series, the girls discuss how ISIS used religion to justify sex slavery, the fall of the so-called caliphate and what should be done with individuals like Shamima Begum.
