A 17-year-old Austrian girl, Samra Kesinovic who went to Syria to join the Islamic State (IS) with her 15-year-old friend, Sabina Selimovic is reported to have been beaten to death by the group after attempting to flee from the militant group's base in Raqqa.
The girls travelled through Turkey en route to Syria after allegedly being brainwashed by Bosnian Islamist preacher Ebu Tejma in Vienna. Both girls aged 17 and 15 were said to have married IS fighters soon after their arrival in Raqqa, and were even photographed in full burqas carrying Kalashnikovs and surrounded by armed men in routine images used by the terror group to draw other young girls to Syria.
For Samra, perhaps the sight of the atrocities and brutalities might have had the better part of her as she reportedly wrote to her family soon after arriving saying she wanted to leave because she was sickened by IS brutality, but she was unable to do so.
The Islamic militant group have in their camp some 190 Austrians in Syria, some young British girls including Bethnal Green schoolgirls Kadiza Sultana, Shamima Begum and Amira Abase have also gone to join the group.
