Bangla sanglap Desk: A British schoolgirl who fled the UK to join ISIS in Syria has been killed by an airstrike in Raqqa.
Kadiza Sultana, 17, is thought to have died earlier this year after her home in the terror state’s stronghold city was hit by a bomb believed to have been dropped by a Russian plane.
The teenager had quickly become disillusioned with Isis and told her family last summer that she wanted to return home.
Tonight ITV News revealed that Kadiza, who was one of three Bethnal Green schoolgirls who left their homes to join so-called Islamic State, is dead.
Her sister Halima Khanom said: ‘We were expecting this, in a way. But at least we know she is in a better place.’
The schoolgirl had been living in Syria after leaving her home in East London during the Easter 2015 school holidays to join Islamic State.
She travelled with friends Amira Base and Shamima Begum, who were both just 15 when they fled and are believed to still be in Raqqa. All three had attended Bethnal Green Academy in Tower Hamlets.
