Parents of ‘Jihadi Jack’ begin hunger strike over the government’s ‘inaction’ to help their Muslim-convert son, 21, who denied he joined ISIS before ‘disappearing’ in Kurdish-held Syria:

  • John Letts, 56, and Sally Lane, 54, say government has failed to help their child
  • Son Jack flew to Syria after converting to Islam and is suspected of joining ISIS
  • Parents facing charges of funding terrorism but they strongly deny claims

The parents of the Muslim convert known as ‘Jihadi Jack’ say they are embarking on a hunger strike in protest of the government’s inaction to help their 21-year-old son.

John Letts, 56, and Sally Lane, 54, began their week-long fast on the steps of St Paul’s Cathedral in central London at 1pm on Thursday.

They say it is a demonstration against parliament’s failure to help bring their son home.

Jack Letts, 21, disappeared to Syria after converting to Islam, earning him the name ‘Jihadi Jack’.
