The ISIS orphans waiting to come home
At 5 a.m. on a September morning in 2014, 14-year-old Soraya picked up a large suitcase and left her family home in the suburbs of Lyon, France. The sound of her closing the door as she left woke her older sister who promptly ran to warn her mother, Nadia. Nadia flung open the window and yelled at Soraya to come back. The girl paused for a few seconds, looked up and then walked on, past the parking lot and out of sight.
