Shamima Begum: 'Unconfirmed reports' baby son dead

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

Shamima, who fled from Bethnal Green in east London to join Islamic State as a 15-year-old, recently said she regretted speaking to the media. The baby died a few hours after arriving at the hospital, the NGO said.

Begum, 19, gave birth to her third child Jarrah in mid-February, while living at a camp run by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a US -backed alliance of Kurds and other groups that is working to drive the Islamic State out of the last territory they hold. "He was a British citizen".

A reporter for the BBC spoke to a paramedic working for the Kurdish Red Crescent who said that the baby...

The U.K. stripped Begum of her citizenship under the British Nationality Act, but Home Secretary Sajid Javid said the decision wouldn't have applied to Jarrah.

Ms Begum was 15 when she and two other schoolgirls went to join the terror group in February 2015, and married Yago Riedijk, now 27, shortly afterwards.

"I don't really want to stay here, I don't want to take care of my child in this camp because I'm afraid he might even die in this camp", she said in an interview with United Kingdom broadcaster Sky News shortly after giving birth.

"Shamima Begum returned to the internment camp and her son was buried there".

Earlier this week, Mr Akunjee tweeted a screenshot of the reply that they had received from the Home Office. She named him after her first son, who died before she reached Syria's Al-Hawl refugee camp. She had sought to return to Europe with her third child, who was born about three weeks ago.

Tasnime Akunjee tweeted overnight that he has "strong but as yet unconfirmed reports that Shamima Begum's son has died".

The baby, however, retained his citizenship and could have been allowed into the UK.

Mr Javid made the decision after receiving advice that Ms Begum could qualify for Bangladeshi citizenship.

In a letter responding to Renu Begum, the Home Office said it was a matter for the Foreign Office and she would have to confirm she was authorised to make a request for consular assistance on her behalf.

Begum's family had announced the boy's birth on February 17, saying they believed he was "in good health".

A child born to a British parent before they are deprived of their citizenship would still be considered British.
