Newborn son of ISIS bride Shamima Begum has died - Family lawyer confirms

Society A- A A+

The newborn son of exiled ISIS bride Shamima Begum has died, the family's lawyer said on Friday.

In a series of tweets, lawyer Tasnime Akunjee said he had received "strong but unconfirmed reports" of the boy's death on Friday afternoon, and later confirmed the reports were true.

 

Begum left London with her two school friends in 2015 to join the so-called Islamic State in Syria, where she has lived with her husband, a Dutch IS fighter, for the last few years.

She returned to the media spotlight last month after taking part in an interview with The Times from Syria's al-Hawl refugee camp, saying she wanted to return to the UK.
