Report from the Syrian city of Raqqa, filmed by a female student who wanted to show the situation there after Islamic State group jihadists captured the city.
Risking her own safety, she filmed snapshots of daily life underneath her niqab.
A journalist from France 2 obtained her amateur footage, a rare insight into life in the jihadist stronghold.
The number of Europeans who have traveled to Syria and Iraq to join the Islamic state (IS ) , has increased to over 3000 , according to EU's anti - terror chief, Gilles de kerchove.
He tells the BBC that the number also includes anyone who has traveled to the region and returned, and all who have been killed in the fighting.
The footage, filmed in February and April this year, claiming to show people in the streets of the northern Syrian city, and many people are carrying guns.
In one scene we see a woman wearing niqab walking down the street with a small child in the direction of the park. Over her shoulder hangs an AK47.
In another scene, the woman filming secretly is called over to a man in a car. He tells her that her face is visible under the veil and tells her to be more careful when she gets dressed.
Unaware that they are being filmed, we also see women at an internet cafe talking via Skype, in fluent French with family home in France.
- I'm not coming back mom, says one woman, dressed in the niqab, in fluent French.
- You have to get it into your head that I'm never going back. I'm happy here, she says.
Since the so-called Islamic State IS took control of the city last year, women have been forced to wear a special niqab, which is referred to as Saudi-niqab.
