Pro-ISIS Moroccan woman deported
Italy has deported a Moroccan woman who declared herself in favor of the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist group, Interior Minister Angelino Alfano said Friday. The 44-year-old lived in the city of Perugia and "displayed clear signs of religious radicalization, declared herself in favor of ISIS and published content on her Facebook profile that caused it to be shut down," Alfano said. "She expressed marked hostility towards Shiite Muslims, Western countries, Jews, and unbelievers," the minister explained.
The woman also commented on a Facebook post that said: "Believers who emigrate and conduct jihad in God's name can expect God's blessing, and I hope to be among them".
"Amen, I hope so too," the deportee, who was flown from Rome's Fiumicino Airport to the Moroccan city of Casablanca earlier in the day, commented on Facebook.
