'IS bride' Lisa Smith arrested after arriving in Ireland from Syria

A former member of the Irish military who became a so-called Islamic State bride in Syria has been arrested on suspicion of terror offences as she arrived back in Ireland.

Lisa Smith, 38, once accompanied an ex-president and leader of Ireland on foreign trips as a member of the Defence Forces but went to the war-torn Middle Eastern country in 2015 after converting to Islam and becoming radicalised.
