Shamima Begum has not been flown back to the UK in a shroud of secrecy, a source has told Mirror Online.

This afternoon several websites reported that the ISIS bride had been sneaked back into the country amid pressure from European counterparts concerned for the 19-year-old’s wellbeing.

Earlier this year the British born mum’s public bid to get back into the country from a refugee camp in Northern Syria was rejected by then Home Secretary Sajid Javid .

A reliable source has refuted claims that the UK government had changed its mind and allowed the teenager back into the country.

Repeated claims on social media that the press had been banned from reporting on her movements due to the potential unrest her return would cause are also untrue.

Ms Begum was one of three schoolgirls to leave Bethnal Green to join the terror cult in 2015.

When ISIS still held power in the country the teenager was part of its morality police.

She would carry a Kalashnikov rifle with her and became known as a strict enforcer of the group’s conservative laws, such as dress codes for woman.

Having lost the first two children she had with Dutch Yago Riedijk, three days after Ms Begum was found by Times war correspondent Anthony Loyd in February she had her third baby.

It died a month later of a suspected lung infection.

The teen did not immediately win round Brits when she was interviewed in the Al-Hawl camp.

She said she did not regret her decision to join ISIS and claimed she had been unfazed by seeing the head of a decapitated man because he was “an enemy of Islam.”

Regardless, Mr Javid’s decision to strip Ms Begum of her citizenship proved controversial.

Under international law the UK government cannot legally remove someone’s citizenship if doing so would leave them stateless.

Claims by the Home Office that she had Bangladeshi citizenship was refuted by the south Asian country.

Mohammed Akunjee, a lawyer representing the family of Ms Begum, called for the government’s decision to be overturned and an apology offered, accusing Mr Javid of using the case to further his political career.

In a letter published by the Times, Mr Akunjee said: “Your act represents the most profoundly egregious, capricious and politically-driven abuse of power.

“It was a unilateral, unprincipled response to the publishing of Mr Loyd’s interview (with Ms Begum in a refugee camp), deployed as an artifice or device to further your own personal political objective of being Prime Minister.

“Ms Begum was a pawn to your vanity. Her baby died.”
