Shamima Begum reveals propaganda video that encouraged her to join Isis

Shamima Begum has revealed the propaganda video that led to her to join Isis, in a new tell-all documentary from the runaway teenager.

In 'The Shamima Begum Story', due to air on the BBC tonight (7 February), the now-23-year-old reveals she thought she was going to an 'Islamic utopia'.

The propaganda video she saw before leaving the UK shows children having fun at a fair and eating candy floss in Raqqa, Syria, but she quickly learned it wasn't the truth on arrival.

Begum was stripped of her British citizenship in 2019.
