A family of 12 from Luton who were feared to have joined ISIS has released a statement to say they are now in Syria – and urged other Muslims to do the same.
The Mannan family which includes a one-year-old and two grandparents had not been seen since visiting their home country of Bangladesh on May 17.
Muhammed Abdul Mannan, 75, his wife Minera Khatun, 53, their daughter Rajia Khanom, 21, and five sons all went off the radar. Police investigating their disappearance feared they had crossed into Turkey which borders Syria.
A shocking ‘press release’ has now surfaced ‘from the Mannan family in the land of the khilafah’ says ‘We release this statement to confirm that indeed we are in the Islamic State.’
It comes as a video shot in the terror group’s adopted capital of Raqqa in Syria appears to identify two of the three Bethnal Green schoolgirls who quit Britain to join Islamic State in February.
