A shooting range has caused outrage after allowing visitors as young as six years old to aim at a picture of SHAMIMA BEGUM.
‘Ultimate Airsoft Range LTD’ posted a video – which appears to have been deleted – on Twitter on February 19 showing a printer producing targets over the face of Begum.
The tweet includes the hashtags ‘#Traitors’ and ‘#madeyourchoice’.

Other target options shown on a picture hosted on the range’s website include Donald Trump, Justin Bieber and Osama Bin Laden.
Social media users have reacted with anger at the post.
One user said: “This is abhorrent.
“How would they feel if that picture was a member of their family?”
Another added: “I am genuinely disgusted that this was even allowed to happen.”
On their social media page, the company say they are “The UK’s No 1 airsoft shooting range” located in “New Brighton’s WW2 secret tunnels” in Wallasley, Merseyside.
They said: “Ages 6+ can participate with an accompanying adult.”
Airsoft guns used to shoot the target are replica weapons used in airsoft sports.
They are a special type of very low-power air guns designed to shoot non-metallic spherical projectiles – often referred to as ‘BB’ pellets.
Ms Begum, who left east London in 2015, had said she wanted to return home.
She was found in a Syrian refugee camp two weeks ago after reportedly leaving IS’s last stronghold.
Since you are here

Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
