FIGURES. Canadian Somali Muslims blame government for not stopping family member from joining ISIS

The family of a young Canadian Muslim woman who traveled to Syria to join the Islamic State after being radicalized online say losing her was the most shocking thing in the world and the government should have done more to prevent her departure.

The 23-year-old woman made the journey to Syria to join up with ISIS last summer, after taking an online course to study the Qur’an taught by a woman based in Edmonton, says her older sister. When she called home from abroad, she told her family she was never coming home — that Syria was where she was going to die. BUH BYE!
