Documentary on IS female followers

BBC, Panorama, Stacey Meets the IS Brides

Some interesting points on internet recruitment issues are included. This is the re-edited version. The sensationalist ‘IS Brides’ term in the title distracts from the serious issues in the programme."Stacey Dooley travels to Kurdish-controlled northern Syria to holding camps where she meets western women who left their countries to join the so-called Islamic State. For now, the Kurds are containing these women. Some of them are still fervent IS supporters, while others say they just want to come home and face whatever consequences the courts decide. Stacey also finds the camps filled with European children. "
