Bangladesh Says IS Teen Not Eligible for Citizenship


A British teen who joined the Islamic State group in Syria has no claim to Bangladeshi nationality, Dhaka's foreign ministry said Wednesday, after the UK government decided to revoke her citizenship. 

"Bangladesh asserts that Ms. Shamima Begum is not a Bangladeshi citizen. She is a British citizen by birth and has never applied for dual nationality with Bangladesh," the ministry said in a statement.
