Woman secretly films life under Isil in Raqqa, Syria




Syrian woman from Raqqa chose to carry a hidden camera to record what life is like inside the northern Syria city after it was taken over by Islamic State almost 18 months ago.

Filmed in February and April this year, the footage shows men - and women - carrying weapons as they go about their business in busy streets. A veiled woman with an AK-47 slung over her shoulder can be seen holding a child's hand as they enter a playground.

At one point a man in a car pulls up and beckons to the undercover videographer to come forward before berating her for not sufficiently hiding her face under her veil.

The video, which was aired on France 2 this week, also shows French women talking with relatives in France in an internet cafe. They insist they are happy in the city and have no intention of returning, despite their families' desperate pleas.

According to France 2, many have come to join husbands fighting in the country, others to get married. The TV station reports there are around 150 French women living alongside militant groups in Syria.
