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

British ISIS bride Shamima Begum's baby son is believed to have died in Syria, her family's lawyer claims. In a letter obtained by the BBC, Renu called her sister's son "the one true innocent", adding that he "should not lose the privilege of being raised in the safety of this country".

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.

She gave birth shortly afterwards and said she wanted to return to the United Kingdom, but the Home Office stripped her of her British citizenship.

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

'The baby is still alive and Shamima is still alive and they are in a good situation, ' said the source.

A medical source speaking to the BBC the boy was rushed to hospital Thursday morning with breathing difficulties and a lung infection.

She gave birth to her newborn boy last month.

Nintendo Switch goes VR via upcoming Labo VR Kits
In an update post launch, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe became compatible with the Vehicle Kit allowing for a new way to race. Nintendo had previously decided that high-end VR devices would not be popular among families and children.

He added it would be "incredibly difficult" for the government to facilitate the return of a child from Syria. "This is a reminder of why it is so, so risky for anyone to be in this war zone".

Ms Begum, now 19, told journalists she wanted to raise her son in Britain, but the Government revoked her citizenship.

As the inevitable territorial defeat of Daesh approaches, thousands of families have fled from Baghuz to the Al-Hol camp for refuge, which reportedly now houses upward of 62,000 people.

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".

Begum's family had pledged to appeal the decision and wrote to Javid pleading for a safe passage for her baby to come to the UK.

Mohammed Tasnime Akunjee said on Twitter that he had received "strong" but "unconfirmed" reports that Miss Begum's baby boy, who was born barely a few weeks ago, has died.

"This is a reminder of why it is so, so risky for anyone to be in this war zone", the UK's Home Secretary Sajid Javid told the BBC upon news of the boy's death. However, the Bangladesh foreign ministry said in a statement that Begum is not a Bangladeshi citizen, nor has she ever visited the country.
