A former model and DJ from Melbourne, described by his former agency as having a promising future, is the latest Australian believed to have been killed fighting alongside ISIS militants in Syria.
The parents of Sharky Jama, 25, were informed of their son’s death via a text message and phone call on Monday, said Hussein Harakow, president of the Somali Australian Council of Victoria.
