A London teen who left Britain four years ago to join ISIS is set to be stripped off her U.K. citizenship by the government, her lawyer has said.

According to the lawyer her family is considering all legal avenues to challenge this decision.

Shamima Begum who now wants to return home with her new born baby had fled London to join the terror group with her two friends four years ago when she was only 15 years old.

The teenager who was interviewed by Times Magazine last month has come out to explain how she had been married to an ISIS fighter, lost two children through malnutrition and disease, and her only wish was to see her newly born baby boy grow up in a conducive environment.
