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

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

Miss Begum has said in past interviews that her son, whom she named Jarah, was her third child after the previous two had died in Syria.

In a tweet on Friday, lawyer Mr Akanke said there were "strong reports" the baby had died. "He was a British Citizen", her family's lawyer Tasnime Akunjee wrote on Twitter.

However, Mustafa Bali, the spokesman for the Syrian Democratic Forces, which is leading the fight against Isis, said claims of the infant's death were "fake".

Begum left the country from Bethnal Green in east London to join Islamic State aged just 15.

She was found by a journalist living in a refugee camp in northern Syria after reportedly leaving Baghuz - IS's last stronghold. But sources told Sky News Begum's son is "alive and healthy" and rejected the claim he had died.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid stripped her of her British citizenship in an effort to block her return.

Asked whether there was any plan for Ms Begum's son, Mr Javid told the Commons Home Affairs Committee it would be "incredibly difficult" for the Government to facilitate the return of a child from Syria.

The 19-year-old resurfaced in February at a refugee camp in Syria with her new baby, who is believed to have been born last month.

Mr Avid previously said that the revocation of Ms Begum's citizenship would not apply to her son, saying: "Children should not suffer, so if a parent does lose their British citizenship it does not affect the rights of their child".

"We further understand that indeed she and her child had been threatened by others at the Al-Hol camp".

"I'm still in that mentality of planes over my head, emergency backpacks, starving.it would be a big shock to go back to the United Kingdom and start again", she said.

She resurfaced heavily-pregnant at the Syrian refugee camp last month and spoke of her desire to return to the United Kingdom, as the self-styled caliphate collapsed.

Under global law, the United Kingdom can revoke a citizenship of a British national only if the individual would not be made stateless. However, this looks unlikely as The Netherlands authorities have said that they will not assist their own nationals returning from fighting in Syria, so are unlikely to help a foreign national.
