In her first television interview, a 24-year-old Alabama woman who spent four years as an ISIS bride told ABC News that she’d felt obligated to go to Syria once the so-called caliphate had been announced by the terror group.
Muthana said she had a good relationship with her family but found home life very strict and longed for a more Americanized life, one in which she was able to go out and have friends.
At the age of 17, she turned to social media, specifically Twitter. A year later, she became radicalized, Muthana told ABC News Tuesday.
