British ISIS Bride Shamima Begum's Newborn Son Has Died

Shamima Begum was stripped of her British citizenship after fleeing the UK to join the Islamic State terror group in Syria aged 15

Jarrah died of pneumonia on Thursday, according to a medical certificate.

A British government spokesman said: "The death of any child is tragic and deeply distressing for the family".

Upon hearing the news, UK Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott slammed Sajid Javid for behaving "shamefully", saying that he was responsible for the boy's death.

"If the British Government has stripped her of her nationality then another country should adopt her, any Muslim country", he told reporters at the Baitul Futuh Mosque in Morden, south-west London, ahead of an annual peace conference.

It was in reaction to the minister's decision to revoke 19-year-old Begum's British citizenship on security grounds, indicating that she would have the right to acquire Bangladeshi citizenship by virtue of her parents' heritage.

Renu, eldest sister of Shamima Begum holds her sister's photo whilst being interviewed by the media at New Scotland Yard, Central London.

She had been sheltering in the Hol camp featured below in a video by the International Committee of the Red Cross and Crescent but was forced to move, reportedly because she received death threats.

The opposition Labour party said the move to leave an innocent child in a refugee camp, where infant mortality rates are high, was morally reprehensible.

Dal Babu, a former Metropolitan Police chief superintendent and friend of Ms Begum's family, told the BBC: "We've failed, as a country, to safeguard the child".

It was reported that she could be eligible for Bangladeshi citizenship, but Dhaka said there was "no question" of her being allowed to enter the country.

Earlier this week, her father Ahmed Ali, who now lives in Bangladesh, blamed the United Kingdom authorities for failing to prevent Begum fleeing the country on her sister's passport.

Decisions to withdraw citizenship from individuals were evidence based and not taken lightly, it added.

The 52-year-old continued that the Foreign Office had not sent officials to Syria because "we have to think about the safety of the British officials that I would send into that war zone as a representative of the Government". "This is callous and inhumane". For the Home Secretary it poses hard questions.

A Home Office spokesperson said: "We do not comment on individual cases. This is a reminder of why it is so, so risky for anyone to be in this war zone".

Speaking to the BBC on Friday, before it was confirmed that the baby had died, Mr Javid said: "Sadly there are probably many children, obviously perfectly innocent, who have been born in this war zone".

Begum, who married a Dutch IS fighter, was located by journalists in a refugee camp after fleeing fighting between the terror group and US-backed forces. "I don't know if my Mum every got me a Pakistani passport or not, I've never been to Pakistan", she told The Telegraph.

Begum's son was born on February 17, days after she was tracked down heavily-pregnant by in a refugee camp in Syria.
