Fighting for the Right to Return

Several thousand women—so-called ISIS widows—have been left stranded with young children after their husbands died with fighting the Islamic State.
 
Heavily Muslim Bosnia-Herzegovina, a top per capita exporter of ISIS fighters, is weighing the complex question of whether ISIS widows should be allowed to return from Syrian camps.
 
The widows may have been radicalized, officials worry, but many claim they did not partake in fighting and are unlikely to face trial at home. In the meantime, their families lobby for their return and turn to each other for support.
