ISIS militant 'wants to return' to Italy

Police say Meriem Rehaily left Italy for Syria last July

(ANSA) - Venice, February 22 - A 19-year-old woman of Moroccan who left a town near Padua for Syria to allegedly join ISIS last July has called her family in Italy wanting to desert the terrorist organisation and return home, Italian daily Il Gazzettino reported.
    The phone call reportedly took place a month ago and was intercepted by Italian anti-terrorist police who have engaged international protocols in an effort to protect both the woman, Meriem Rehaily, and her family.
