Family of 12 'travel to Syria' from Luton

A family of 12 has disappeared amid fears they have travelled to Syria. The group from Luton, which reportedly includes a baby and two grandparents, failed to return home from a holiday in Bangladesh.

  • Muhammed Abdul Mannan, 75
  • His wife Minera Khatun, 53
  • Their daughter Rajia Khanom, 21
  • Sons Mohammed Zayd Hussain, 25
  • Mohammed Toufique Hussain, 19
  • Mohammed Abil Kashem Saker, 31
  • His wife Sheida Khanam, 27
  • Mohammed Saleh Hussain, 26
  • His wife Roshanara Begum, 24, along with three children, aged between one and 11

We are devastated by the disappearance of these 12 and are very concerned for their safety. This is completely out of character and we are very worried of the danger they may now be in. Muhammed Abdul Mannan is elderly and both he and Minera Khatun have health issues. This just does not make any sense. We can only think they have been tricked into going there, it is no place for elderly or young people. We would urge any of them to please make contact with us or the police to let us know they are okay.
