Lidia Solana Herrera is a Cuban woman resident in Belluno, in Northern Italy. Her son Ismail, just three year old, was kidnapped by his father, Ismar Mesinovic, who was reportedly killed while fighting for the Islamic State.
Some days ago, Mrs Herrera recognized Ismail in a photo posted on the Web. In the photo the child wears a black bandanna and carries a small automatic rifle.
According to the special branch of the Italian Military Police, the photo is authentic and the identification by the mother plausible. It is unknown, however, where exactly the photo was taken.
