Sources have linked the unidentified woman to the Islamic State terror group.

It has also been reported that the woman has an infant child, and wishes to return to Ireland.

She said her husband - who is British and who she met in Syria - had been killed two months earlier.

According to Irish police, the woman is thought to have been radicalised and fled for Syria several years ago.

A former female member of the Defence Forces has been detained in Syria.

The woman, who held the rank of private, left the Defence Forces around eight years ago and was subsequently radicalised.

Trump claims Michael Cohen asked him 'directly' for pardon
Cohen has already lost everything due to his relationship to the president and is going to jail with or without a testimony. He may also try to depose senior executives of the Trump Organization, including the president himself.

A relative confirmed to the newspaper that they recognised the woman from the ITV News interview.

"The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is aware of reports of an Irish citizen detained in northern Syria".

The Department of Foreign affairs says it provides consular assistance to all Irish citizens overseas, but it is not clear if this woman has sought assistance from the Irish or other authorities.

They said they were trying to bring her home from Syria and that she had been in "some campsite" there.

A spokesman for the Ministry for Justice in Ireland said they were aware of the woman, but that "it would not be appropriate to comment on the detail of security matters, or indeed on individual cases".
