Islamic State 'poster girl' beaten to death: reports

A TEENAGER from Vienna who became a 'poster girl' for Isis fighters in Syria has reportedly been beaten to death after trying to escape from Islamic State in Raqqa.

Samra Kesinovic, and her friend, 15-year-old Sabina, travelled to Syria together last year to join Isis.

Both are now believed to be dead.

Numerous reports say Samra was beaten to death but the interior and foreign ministries have not confirmed this, Austria's The Local reported.

One of the reports quotes a Tunisian woman who also travelled to Syria to join the jihadists last year but later escaped and returned home.

She told the newspaper that she lived with Samra and Sabina in Raqqa.

Photos of both girls have appeared on social networking sites, holding rifles and surrounded by armed men.

The images have been used by IS to recruit young girls.
