The newborn son of U.K.-born teenager Shamima Begum who left her London home to join the Islamic State group in Syria died Friday in a refugee camp, an official said.

Mustafa Bali, a spokesman for the Syrian Democratic Forces, confirmed that the infant died at a camp in north Syria. He didn't provide further details.

In a day of conflicting reports about the baby's fate, lawyer Tasnime Akunjee tweeted that he had "strong but as yet unconfirmed reports that Shamima Begum's son has died. He was a British citizen." He declined to provide further details.

Former Voice contestant Janice Freeman dies aged 33 from a blood clot at her California home after her husband performed CPR to try and save her

Former Voice contestant Janice Freeman dies aged 33 from a blood clot at her California home after her husband performed CPR to try and save her Janice Freeman's family told TMZ that the singer was at home in Pasadena, California, on Saturday when she began complaining that she couldn't breathe. Her husband Dion called 911 and performed CPR on her until paramedics arrived. She was brought to the hospital and pronounced dead at around 5.30pm local time. Doctors determined that a blood clot had traveled to her heart, according to TMZ. Freeman had struggled with a number of health issues including lupus, meningitis and cervical cancer, which she'd beaten. The performer made it to the top 11 on season 13 of The Voice under the mentorship of Miley Cyrus.

Then, Bali tweeted that the reports were "fake" and the baby "is alive and healthy." But he later deleted the tweet without explanation, and shortly after confirmed the baby's death.

The British government couldn't confirm the reports.

Begum was 15 when she and two friends left London to marry IS fighters in Syria in 2015, at a time when the group's online recruitment program lured many impressionable young people to its self-proclaimed caliphate.

'Brilliant' man who was an inventor of the calculator dies

'Brilliant' man who was an inventor of the calculator dies Jerry Merryman, one of the inventors of the hand-held electronic calculator, has died in Dallas. He was 86. 

Begum, now 19, told journalists that she wanted to raise her son in Britain, but the government revoked her citizenship. Begum told reporters that she had lost two other children to malnutrition and disease.

Her Dutch jihadi husband Yago Riedijk, who is in a Kurdish-run detention center, said last week that he wanted to return to the Netherlands with Begum and their son.

British Home Secretary Sajid Javid said last month he had revoked Begum's citizenship — even while saying he wouldn't make a decision that would render a person stateless. Javid also confirmed that Begum's son was a British citizen, though he said it would be "incredibly difficult" to facilitate the return of a child from Syria.

Begum's parents are from Bangladesh but her family says she isn't a dual citizen. The family has said it plans to challenge Javid's decision.
