The lawyer for Shamima Begum's family says there are "strong but as yet unconfirmed reports" that her baby son has died.

Begum left London aged 15 with two other schoolgirls to join Islamic State.

Speaking to Matt Frei, the former Met chief superintendent Dal Babu said that Shamima Begum's child was "innocent" amid a row over whether the Isis bride should be allowed to return to the UK.

However, Javid had previously said that bringing the baby home from the war zone would be "incredibly hard". She had lived inside the group's territory for four years, married a fighter and had two children, both of whom she said died of malnutrition and were buried in the Islamic State's last remaining village in Syria, which has now been encircled by coalition forces.

"Losing my children the way I lost them, I don't want to lose this baby as well and this is really not a place to raise children, this camp".

The spokesman said the government had consistently advised against travelling to Syria and would "continue to do whatever we can to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and travelling to unsafe conflict zones".

"The Government will continue to do whatever we can to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and travelling to unsafe conflict zones".

Home Secretary Sajid Javid has faced criticism for his handling of the similar case of Ms Begum.

"So we played very well for 60 minutes and then were very exhausted , but I think that's the normal reaction to our seven days". Well, in that case, the team which lifts the Europa League would go directly into the Champions League next season.

His revelations come just days after Shamima Begum's three-week-old baby, Jerah, perished at Al Hawl camp in the northeastern part of the war-torn country.

But he later deleted the tweet without explanation, and shortly after confirmed the baby's death.

In an interview with a reporter from the Times of London, who found her in the Syrian camp, she said she wanted to return home in large part because of her son's health.

A spokesman for the Syrian Democratic Forces confirmed to AP that the infant died at a camp in north Syria, where 19-year-old Begum had been living after fleeing the vestiges of the terror group's so-called caliphate.

As the baby was born while Begum was still a British national, his status was that of a British national and Begum's London-based family had written to Mr Javid to assist them in bringing the baby back to the United Kingdom based on his rights as a British citizen.

Javid has previously suggested that children of jihadists who lose their citizenship could still be British.

Begum told ITV that it was "kind of heartbreaking to read" a copy of the letter, calling the move "hard to swallow" and "a bit unjust on me and my son".
