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

The new-born baby of Shamima Begum, a British-born teenager who fled to join ISIS, is likely to have died, according to her family's lawyer.

Her lawyer, Tasnime Akunjee, told the Guardian: "We have strong but as yet unconfirmed reports that Shamima Begum's son has died".

Worldwide law forbids countries from making people stateless by revoking their only citizenship. He declined to provide further details.

Then, Mr Bali tweeted the reports were "fake" and the baby "is alive and healthy".

Akunjee told the paper: "I can confirm that it is our understanding that Shamima has been moved from Al-Hol due to safety concerns around her and her baby".

Ms Begum said she had previously lost two other children and named her new son Jarrah after her firstborn.

Ms Begum was 15 when she and two other schoolgirls went to join the terror group in February 2015.

The boxes consisted of Big Macs from McDonald's and Chick-Fil-A food, according to pool reporter Laura Figueroa. The North Dakota Bison Football team are seven-time NCAA Football Championship Subdivision winners.

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.

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 USA -backed alliance of Kurds and other groups that is working to drive the Islamic State out of the last territory they hold.

The reports about Miss Begum's child came as it was announced that 100 people have died over the past two months on the way to the camp or shortly after arriving, two thirds of whom were babies and infants.

Begum - who gave birth to her son last month - told Sky News he was unwell and she was struggling to get medical supplies.

"He was a British Citizen".

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.

Begum's parents are from Bangladesh but her family says she isn't a dual citizen.

Her family can challenge the decision before the Special Immigration Appeals Commission - Begum's reported Bangladeshi status is expected to be a prime focus as part of that process.
