?Shamima Begum, the east London schoolgirl who fled to Syria, served in the Islamic State's "morality police" and also tried to recruit other young women to join the jihadist group, well-placed sources have told The Sunday Telegraph.

She was allowed to carry a Kalashnikov rifle and earned a reputation as a strict "enforcer" of Isis's laws, such as women's dress codes, sources claimed.

The claims are at odds with Begum's own account of her years with the group, which she joined at age 15.

Begum, now aged 19, has insisted she was never involved in Isis's brutality but spent her time in Syria as a devoted housewife to a jihadist.
