Three-week-old infant is the third child the teenager from east London has lost

The newborn son of Shamima Begum has died in a Syrian refugee camp. Jarrah was buried on Friday, three weeks after the east London teenager who joined Islamic State gave birth.

A Kurdish intelligence official said the infant had been taken to hospital in al-Roj camp in north-eastern Syria with breathing difficulties several times in the past week. A friend of Begum said “the baby turned blue and was cold” before being rushed to a clinic inside the camp. Jarrah is understood to have been buried along with two other children who were burned in a fire on Thursday night.
