The 22-year-old east London schoolgirl, who fled her home in 2015 to join terror group Isis, was questioned on comments she made about the bombing on Good Morning Britain today (Wednesday).

In 2019, she said the attack that killed 22 people was 'justified' because of airstrikes that killed civilians in Syria. Begum said she regretted her actions and asked the British people for forgiveness.

She said: “I do not believe that one evil justifies another evil. I don’t think that women and children should be killed for other people’s motives and for other people’s agendas.” READ
