Shamima Begum: 'Unconfirmed reports' baby son dead

'Strong reports' IS teen bride's baby has died

Jerah, the baby son of Shamima Begum, a teenager who fled the United Kingdom to join Islamic State in Syria, may have died, according to her family's lawyer.

The paramedic, working for the Kurdish Red Crescent in and around the camp where Ms Begum had been staying, said the baby had been suffering from breathing difficulties and a lung infection.

Ms Begum's British citizenship was revoked on the grounds that she is eligible for citizenship of Bangladesh until the age of 21 through her parents' Bangladeshi dual nationality. Sky News also cited sources contradicting earlier reports, claiming the boy is "alive and healthy".

Asked if she had anything to say to British politicians, she said: "I would like them to re-evaluate my case with a bit more mercy in their heart, you know".

The SDF - a US-backed, anti-IS rebel group that controls the camp where Ms Begum is living - confirmed the death on Friday.

He later had small role in the cult-favorite 1998 indie film Buffalo '66 , as well as in the 2003 film, White Boy . The document shows Vincent was 73 at the time of his death and that no autopsy was performed.


She has already lost two other children to malnutrition and disease.

He added: "I have nothing but sympathy for the children that have been dragged into this".

In a day of conflicting reports about the baby's fate, lawyer Tasnime Akunjee tweeted that he had "strong but as yet unconfirmed reports that Shamima Begum's son has died".

In a tweet on Friday, lawyer Mr Akunjee said the baby son was a British citizen.

ISIS bride Begum gave birth to two other children after she was captured, but both are believed to have died.

In an interview with the BBC after the birth of Jar rah, she said she did not regret travelling to Syria - although she added that she did not agree with everything the IS group had done.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid stripped the British citizenship of Ms Begum - who is from Bethnal Green in east London - amid a fierce national debate over whether she should be allowed to return.

Renu Begum, sister of teenage British girl Shamima Begum, holds a photo of her sister as she makes an appeal for her to return home at Scotland Yard, in London, Britain February 22, 2015.

Mr Akunjee did not return phone calls and neither the Foreign Office or the Home Office were able to confirm or deny reports. She married a Dutch man within days of her arrival in Syria when she was 15.

It told them that the possibility of bringing the baby to the United Kingdom was a matter for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and that they would need permission from Ms Begum.
