The British ISIS Bride Shamima Begum has lost the first stage of her legal fight to have her former citizenship restored.

Ms. Begum travelled to Syria back in 2015 to join ISIS.

This case contrasts starkly with the Irish ISIS Bride Lisa Smith, who was welcomed back with open arms by the Irish Government.
