UK woman who took toddler to join Daesh jailed for 6 years


Tareena Shakil was convicted last week of being a member of the group and encouraging acts of terrorism.

A judge has sentenced a British woman to six years in prison for going to Syria to live under the rule of Daesh.

Tareena Shakil was convicted last week of being a member of the group and encouraging acts of terrorism.

In October 2014 she and her 1-year-old son boarded a plane to Turkey and then traveled to Syria. After three months Shakil fled, taking a taxi to the Turkish border and returning to Britain.

Shakil denied the charges.

But judge Melbourne Inman said Monday that the 26-year-old had been “well aware that the future which you had subjected your son to was very likely to be indoctrination and thereafter life as a terrorist fighter.”
