ISIS teenage ‘poster girl’ Samra Kesinovic ‘beaten to death’
Austrian teenage girl Samra Kesinovic has been beaten to death by militants of the Islamic State (ISIS) for trying to escape the group’s de facto capital of Raqqa, local sources reported on Tuesday.
Kesinovic, 17, left Austria with her friend in April 2014 to join the ranks of ISIS in Syria.
“The girl was caught by ISIS female jihadists while trying to escape Raqqa. She was then handed over to the group’s leadership and was subsequently beaten to death,” an informed local source told Kurdish independent agency in Raqqa.
Kesinovic’s friend Sabina Selimovic, who was 15 when she left Austria, was reported dead earlier this year in war-torn Syria.
The parents of both victims are Bosnian refugees based in Austria for nearly two decades, according to reports.
When Kesinovic and Selimovic decided to join ISIS, they had left behind a letter to their parents saying: “Don’t look for us. We will serve Allah… and we will die for him”.
More than 120 people have left Austria to join the ranks of the ISIS extremist group.
Previously the two girls had contacted their families and stated that they wanted to come – Sadly time has run out for them and they have paid the ultimate price for their association with IS

Austrian officials have talked to the girls about coming home but the country’s laws against jihadists returning are blocking their way.
