Toddler Kidnapped by Father and Taken to IS in Iraq Returns to Mother's Arms


This little toddler named Bilal Tagirov was just two years old when his father kidnapped him and forced him to travel to Syria in October 2015. Bilal's father Hassan Tagirov left the Chechen Republic in order to fight for the self-proclaimed Islamic State. His mother Zalikha Ashakhanova only found out that her son was located in Mosul by chance when she saw a video of him online on July 15, 2017. The toddler was found by Chechen security forces in Mosul and finally reunited with Zalikha in Grozny on Thursday, returning to her waiting arms.
