People of Al-Bab in Syria tell of last days under ISAl-Bab (Syria) (AFP) – In the days before the Islamic State group’s Syrian bastion Al-Bab fell, Umm Abdo’s family sheltered underground both from the bombing and from jihadists themselves looking for somewhere to hide. “Each time they (IS) found a family in a basement, they’d chase them out so they could take their place,” the veiled and abaya-wearing Umm Abdo told AFP. At Umm Abdo’s side, her three other children appeared to have regained some of their composure.
