Hoda Muthana, an American who joined Isis four years ago, now wants to return home. The Guardian’s Martin Chulov describes his time at al-Hawl refugee camp, where an estimated 1,500 foreign women and children are seeking safety. And: Polly Toynbee on the split within the Labour party
Last month, Hoda Muthana and her one-year-old son were captured by Kurdish forces after fleeing the last pocket of land controlled by Islamic State. American-born Muthana travelled to Syria to join the terror group in 2014, and was at one time one of Isis’s most prominent online agitators. Muthana has said she now deeply regrets the decision to go and wants to return to America.
The Guardian’s Middle East editor, Martin Chulov, talks to India Rakusen about his time inside the sprawling camp of al-Hawl, where he interviewed Muthana. The camp, currently home to 39,000 refugees, is situated about two hours from Baghuz, where a final battle to oust extremists is days from being completed.
