The popular Twitter account of Bana al-Abed, a seven-year-old Syrian girl with a huge following on social media, has mysteriously disappeared after posting one last foreboding message.

The young Syrian captured the hearts of hundreds of thousands of followers by sharing heartbreaking pictures and videos from her war-torn hometown of Aleppo.

The last message posted on 4 December from the account that Bana shares with her mother Fatemah reportedly read: "We are sure the army is capturing us now.

Although Bana has tweeted ominous messages in the past, this is the first time the account has disappeared from the platform.
