LONDON — A woman who traveled to Syria as a teenager to join the Islamic State group has lost her appeal against the British government’s decision to revoke her British citizenship.

Shamima Begum, now 24, was 15 when she and two other London girls joined the extremist group in February 2015. Authorities stripped her British citizenship on national security grounds shortly after she appeared in a field. of Syrian refugees in 2019.

His lawyers brought an attempt to overturn that decision at the Court of Appeal, and Britain’s Home Office opposed the challenge. In a ruling Friday, three judges dismissed his case.
