‘Take-away food… now I wanna behead some kafirs’

One of the three east London schoolgirls who left the UK to become ‘jihadi brides’ in Syria has confirmed that she is now living in the Islamic State – by tweeting a picture of chicken and chips.

Amira Abase, 15, left Bethnal Green with Shamima Begum 15, and Kadiza Sultana, 16, in February, and are believed to be living in the Syrian city of Raqqa.

Now, nearly two months after her departure, Amira has shared a snipped of life in the Islamic State, tweeting a picture of a her enjoying a takeaway dinner with another teenage ‘jihadi bride’.


Tell me again why it’s important we stop these lunatics from going to Syria or Iraq?
