"Feared dead"...



IS schoolgirl story


Quote:

One of three schoolgirls who left east London last year to join so-called Islamic State (IS) is believed to have been killed in an air strike in Syria, her family solicitor has said.

Kadiza Sultana was 16 when she left Bethnal Green along with two friends.

Her family's lawyer, Tasnime Akunjee, told BBC Newsnight they learned of her death in Raqqa a few weeks ago.

But he said they have not been able to independently confirm it because of the nature of information from Syria.

Mr Akunjee said she had grown disillusioned and wanted to leave IS and return to the UK but had been unable to do so.

He told the programme the family were "obviously devastated".

Mr Akunjee added: "There's nothing worse than finding out your sibling or family member's been killed and by all accounts she was a young girl with a very promising future - and it's a great loss to us all really.

"Every effort was made from the very beginning to avoid this fateful news and despite all efforts it's unfortunate that we find ourselves with the loss of a young life."

Kadiza Sultana and schoolfriends Shamima Begum and Amira Abase, both 15 at the time, flew from Gatwick to Turkey on 17 February 2015 after telling their parents they were going out for the day.

The Bethnal Green Academy pupils later entered Syria and were thought to be living in Raqqa, the self-styled capital of IS.

The three girls had been studying for their GCSEs at the school in Tower Hamlets, east London - where they have been described as "straight-A students".

A fourth girl from the school is believed to have travelled to Syria in December 2014.

Last year, a solicitor for the families said two of the girls had got married, without identifying which ones.

The Bethnal Green schoolgirls were among more than 800 Britons believed to have left the UK to join IS or other militant groups in Syria and Iraq,




I thought this inevitable.

Is anyone really so stupid as to travel to join IS and not think they are risking death?

When they see militant Islamic jihadists cutting heads off people, do they think they are gentle, happy, loving people?


The New Testament faith is a better foundation for life.
