Tánaiste speaks on Lisa Smith controversy


Tánaiste Simon Coveney has said that the “complex and sensitive” process of repatriating Lisa Smith could take weeks.

Details of the operation emerged over the weekend and this is the first time the Minister for Foreign Affairs has spoken on the matter since.

Ms. Smith, who moved to Syria to become an ISIS bride has a two-year-old daughter who, Mr. Coveney says is his “primary concern in all of this.”
