Austrian Jihadi Bride Beaten to Death After Trying to Escape ISIS

In October 2014, I reported on two Austrian teens who abandoned their homes and families to become “poster girls” for ISIS terrorists. In April they left a note for that parents that read: “Don’t look for us. We will serve Allah, and we will die for him.” They had a change of heart in October and desperately wanted to come home.

Samra Kesinovic (then 17) and her friend Sabina Selimovic (then 15) left Austria and were believed to be married, pregnant and living in the ISIS-controlled city of Raqqa in northern Syria.

Now comes word that Samra (now 18) has been beaten to death after trying to escape the group’s Syrian stronghold of Raqqa. A Tunisian woman who had been living with Samra says the young girl was killed by Islamic State extremists after she tried to flee recently, according to The Local Austria.

The gal pals had traveled to the war-torn nation with the hope of becoming “jihadi brides” — and they later married two of the ISIS militants upon their arrival. Photos posted to social media in the following months showed the pair wearing black burkas and wielding AK-47s. Officials said earlier this year they believed Selimovic had been killed during a skirmish in Syria.
