In response to whether she had anything to say to politicians in Westminster, Begum told Sky News: “I would like them to re-evaluate my case with a bit more mercy in their heart, you know.”

Asked if she can change or be rehabilitated, she replied: “I am willing to change.”

She added that she was “struggling to get my supplies in right now”, referring to an apparent lack of resources in the northern Syrian camp that has been her home since she fled the embattled enclave where Isis is making its final stand.
