A suspected jihadi bride who returned to the UK having given birth to a child under Islamic State rule in Syria has been bailed after she was arrested at Heathrow.
The woman, 27, whose identity has not been revealed arrived on a flight from Addis Ababa and was arrested on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts under section 5 of the Terrorist Act 2006.
It is thought this is the first case of its kind involving a mother and a child born into the ISIS regime.
MI5 has previously said around 850 extremists from Britain travelled to the Middle East as ISIS took control of pockets of Syria and Iraq.
And as the terror group is flushed out of its former strongholds, many of its militants with British passports are returning home with their families.
The mother is the latest in a string of arrests made by British counter-terror police bracing itself for an influx of jihadi brides.
