BREAKING: ‘Strong but unconfirmed reports’ IS bride’s baby has died


The lawyer for IS bride Shamima Begum has said there is ‘strong but as yet unconfirmed reports’ that her baby son has died. 

The 19-year-old Islamic State bride and her newborn son Jarrah had been living in a Syrian refugee camp after she had her British citizenship revoked.

Begum – who has previously lost two children – revealed last month that her young son was unwell and she would not allow him to return to the UK alone.

Begum’s husband, Dutch IS fighter Yago Riedijk, told Sky News they both made a mistake when they joined the terror group. He married the British teenager just weeks after she arrived in IS territory as a 15-year-old in 2015.

Begum was 15 when she left London to join IS, along with two other schoolgirls from Bethnal Green.

She gained media attention whilst heavily pregnant last month, speaking of her desire to return to the UK.
