Teen bride 'will not be rescued' from Syria

The father of one of the British teenagers who ran away to join Isil has broken his silence, pleading with the Government to allow them to return. Hussen Abase said the three girls from Bethnal Green "should be allowed to learn from their mistakes", adding: "They are no threat to us." Read his interview with Patrick Sawer. He was speaking after Shamima Begum was tracked down to a refugee camp in northern Syria, where she is now the bride of an Isil fighter. But Ben Wallace, the security minister, has insisted she will not be rescued - warning that "actions have consequences". Read on for more of what he said.

Miss Begum, who is said to be heavily pregnant, is living in the al-Hol refugee camp in northern Syria along with 39,000 other refugees. But what is the so-called "Camp of Death"? Josie Ensor has this dispatch from the camp where British mothers and children struggle to survive in legal limbo.
