The teenager Islamist "poster girl" who was beaten to death for trying to escape the ISIS was also used as a sex slave for new fighters during her time with the terrorist group. A former prisoner revealed this bothering information. 

It was recently reported that Samra Kesinovic was killed by the ISIS for trying to flee the stronghold of Raqqa. She, 17, and her friend Sabina Selimovic, 15, left their homes in Vienna to join the ISIS back in 2014. Since then, they appeared on ISIS websites holding AK-47s and surrounded by groups of armed men. Their images were used to attract more young girls to join the terrorist group. 

However by October, Kesinovic was said to have a change of heart and was already sickened by the murders and atrocities being carried out by the ISIS. When she tried to leave, she was beaten to death. However, according to a Tunisian former extremist, Kesinovic was already suffering so much during her time with the terror group before she was beaten to death. According to Daily Mail UK, the Tunisian shared that before her death, Kesinovic was forced to be a sex slave for the new fighters of the terror group. She and her friend were considered "sexual present for the new fighters." The Tunisian former extremist shared that she knew of this because she lived with the two girls in the same house. Kesinovic's younger friend, Selimovic died first, fighting in Syria. The Tunisian was able to do what Kesinovic wanted to do but failed - she escaped the clutches of the ISIS and is now alive to reveal what she knew of Kesinovic's fate. Austria's The Local, however, still said that the teenager's death is not confirmed.

Sabina allegedly left her home for life with the ISIS because she wanted to practice her religion freely. She stated in her SMS messages to a French magazine that not leaving Vienna was not an option because she cannot practice her religion in the country as freely as she can with the ISIS. 

According to Austrian Interior Ministry spokesman Alexander Marakovits, young people's attraction to the ISIS is a significant problem and asserted that the parents have big roles to play in solving this problem. He said, "If we can catch them before they leave we have the chance to work with their parents and other institutions to bring the youngsters out of the sphere of influence that prompted them to act in this way the first place." He added, "Once they have left the country, even if they then changed their minds, it is then almost impossible to get them back."
