First photos of ‘ordinary Yorkshire lads’, believed to have travelled to Syria to join Isis, emerge

Families of Hassan Munshi and Talha Asmal have appealed for the teenagers to come home

The first photographs of the two “ordinary Yorkshire lads” who are thought to have travelled to Syria to fight for Isis have been released by their families.

Hassan Munshi and Talha Asmal, both 17-year-old, were last seen by their families in Dewsbury, west Yorkshire, on the 31 March before travelling to Turkey.

Earlier this week the families of the two boys released a statement pleading for information surrounding their disappearance and warning other families it was “near impossible” to catch the warning signs of radicalisation.

The two boys are the latest of an estimated 600 Britons who are believed to have travelled to Syria to fight for the extremist group Isis, also known as Islamic State.
