Shamima Begum and her newborn baby have fled the Syrian refugee camp in which they were living after receiving a torrent of death threats, the Daesh bride's lawyer has told the Sun.

Shamima gave birth to a boy last month, having already lost two children.

Reports say that Miss Begum and her baby are believed to have relocated to a base along Syria's border with Iraq.

'Shamima has become something of a celebrity and is constantly looking over her shoulder, fearing brutal reprisals for daring to speak out about life with ISIS.

But she upset religious hardliners who scorned her for appearing on TV without covering her face in line with extreme Islamic law.

Ms Begum fled from Bethnal Green in east London to join Islamic State as a 15-year-old in 2015.

Her father condemned her for not disavowing what Isis has done - saying he is "on the side of the Government" for banning her from re-entering the country.

Jihadi bride Shamima Begum is reported to have had a price put on her head by other ISIS wives. They also want to raise her new born boy. "I wish I had stayed low and found a different way to contact my family", she told the Sunday Telegraph in an interview on February 24.

She recently said she regretted speaking to the media, following a national debate over whether she should return to the UK.

The development comes after British officials ruled out any effort inside Syria to extract Ms Begum and her child.

Xochitl Torres Small of New Mexico, reportedly grew emotional as she responded angrily to the threat by Ocasio-Cortez. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threatening to put those voting with Republicans "on a list" for a primary challenge.

Last week Begum, who left the United Kingdom in 2015 with two school friends, said she wanted to return home for the health of her then-unborn child.

She said: "I feel like I've been discriminated against because everyone was saying I was a poster girl for ISIS".

She added: "IS took my passport but I thought to myself 'what am I going to do with it?"

"I'm being made an example of". I question the right of the Home Secretary to have these powers'. "I don't really have any use for it'".

The teenager and her infant son were moved from the Al-Hol camp in the north of the country due to "safety concerns around her and her baby", Tasnime Akunjee said.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid has ordered stripping off of her United Kingdom citizenship, a move Begum called "unjust" and "hard to swallow".

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was criticised after saying Begum should be allowed back into the United Kingdom and given the "support that she needs".

Under worldwide law, it is illegal to strip someone of their only citizenship if they then become stateless.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn sparked scorn by arguing she should be welcomed back to the United Kingdom, believing she could be deradicalised.

The UK, Bangladesh and Holland, where her husband is from, are all adamant to keep her out of their borders, and with worldwide help looking unlikely, Ms Begum will have no other option but remain in a refugee camp.
