In northern Syria, prisons are filled to the point of bursting with foreign ISIS fighters. They want to return to their home countries, but nobody wants them. CBS News was given rare access to, the first time a television crew has been allowed in.
It’s home to 5,000 ISIS captives, including ISIS leaders and the men who built their deadly bombs, according to the guards. But it’s not where CBS News expected to find a 22-year-old man from Minneapolis. Abdelhamid Al-Madioum agreed to tell his story, but we can’t know for sure whether he was speaking freely.
He said he was recruited to ISIS through a contact on Twitter and was bombarded with ISIS propaganda videos.
