A British teenager who was among three schoolgirls who fled the UK to join ISIS in Syria has mocked the victims of the Tunisia massacre.

Amira Abase (16) joked about “laughing out loud” when she spoke with an undercover reporter about the fatal beach attack in Tunisia last week.

Three Irish tourists were among the 38 people killed when gun man Seifeddine Rezgui walked on to the beach in the resort town of Sousse  and opened fire with an automatic weapon.

Simply saying “loooool” in a message to a Mail on Sunday reporter, the teen revealed her role as an active recruiter for ISIS, giving advice of how to travel to Syria, how to conceal the plan to their parents in the UK, and of what conditions to give to a jihadist before becoming their wife.

Preparing to be a teenager girl, the reporter spoke with Ms Abase through social media sites Twitter and Kik.

Speaking about the Tunisia attack, the reporter said: “Sis it’s going mental here. They held a minute silence on Tunisia. All they talk about is the bomber,” to which the London teen replied: “loooool”.

When informed the Tunisian gunman had killed 30 British tourists, she replied: “Wow. Damn that’s a lot,” adding another “loool” to the news that some Muslim leaders were condemning the attack. 

“Why lol? Them tourists were innocent, or am I confused?” the reporter wrote, to which she replied: “Research. Like read about it.”

The 16-year-old schoolgirl was one of three from east London who fled to Syria in February.

She, Shamima Begum and Kadiza Sultana are understood to have undergone a four-month training programme in the Isis stronghold of Raqqa to prepare for “special missions”. 

The teenager revealed in her messages with the reporter that girls joining Isis are taken to a “sisters” house, where they are not allowed to use phones, the internet, or go out.

She also recommended to the reporter that they marry a fighter, and asked whether they would mind being a “second wife”.
