IS wives: Why I joined the 'caliphate' in Raqqa

The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) is making ground against so-called Islamic State (IS) in its Syrian stronghold of Raqqa, reports say. The SDF's offensive has led thousands of people to flee the city, including some families of IS militants.

The BBC’s Shaimaa Khalil spoke to IS wives who got out and are now being held by Kurdish forces.
