Conditions in al-Hawl camp, where Shamima Begum’s baby died, described as ‘dire’
The UK government is being urged to move rapidly to help stranded families of British foreign fighters in Syria, including giving them access to cash, aid and indirect advice on how to return from British-funded aid agencies working in Syria.
Thousands more Islamic State fighters and their families surrendered to the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) on Tuesday, placing a fresh burden on the overcrowded al-Hawl refugee camp in which the son of 19-year-old Shamima Begum died last week. The camp is close to the Iraq border and is controlled by the SDF.
