A national missing persons appeal was launched when Nasra Abukar, then aged just 18, went missing from her home in south-east London.

It has now been reported that she travelled to Syria, where she married a man from Cardiff who had been recruited into ISIS.

The couple had two sons together.

The older of the two, Faris, was killed in a coalition airstrike but Nasra's younger son, three-year-old Talha, is still living with her in the Kurdish-run al-Hol detention camp for jihadi brides in northeastern Syria.

The man Nasra married, Aseel Muthana, was also injured in the attack that killed their son, and is reported to have taken a second wife.

Nasra's mum says that she has nothing to do with her daughter any more, stressing that she was an adult when she went missing and while she reported her missing at the time it's "not her fault" that her daughter got mixed up with Isis.

Kaha Abukar told the Sunday Times: “I don’t have any contact with her. I don’t know her husband. When Nasra left here, she was 18. She was an adult. It’s not my fault.”

She added that her daughter "wasn't particularly religious" before she went missing and expressed a lack of interest in her return to the UK, saying: “It’s not in my hands if she can return. That’s for the government. I can do nothing for her.”

Nasra was very active on social media for a while after her disappearance, saying that life within the ISIS caliphate was good but she is now understood to want to return to the UK.

Following the Paris terror in November 2015, which claimed a total of 130 victims, Abukar posted the word "Paris" followed by a "crying with laughter" emoji.

Her case is being compared to Shamima Begum, another London teen who ran away to join ISIS and later reappeared in the same camp where Nasra is now living.

Up to 850 British extremists are thought to have fought for jihadist groups in Syria over the past decade.

ISIS paid the equivalent of £300 a month.

Nasra's husband says he lost contact with her after ISIS were defeated in Bargouz in March 2019: “We were separated at that point and she was taken to a camp. I wrote to her and I believe the letter was passed on but I have never received a reply.

"My hope is that if I get jailed in the UK, her family might visit me.”

He told the Sunday Mirror that while inside ISIS he had seen crucifixions, beheadings, bodies hanging from posts and homosexuals being thrown off rooftops.

He confessed he had “seen so much blood” that casual executions and limb-chopping punishments became like mere entertainment.
