A distraught Dublin mum whose daughter was abducted by her Syrian dad has revealed she fears for her own safety.
Louise Monaghan (36), who comes from Swords, in north Co Dublin, has been forced to lock herself inside her home in southern Cyprus because she believes that she is being stalked by her ex-husband's friends.
Louise's six-year-old daughter, May Assad Monaghan, disappeared after going on a walk with her father Mostafa Assad last Wednesday.
Mostafa has since contacted his ex-wife and threatened her that she would never see their child again unless she sold her belongings in Cyprus and moved to Syria to live the life of a Muslim woman and be by his side.
Louise, who got divorced from Mostafa last November, now fears for her safety in Cyprus as she believes she is being watched by his friends.
Her sister, Mandy (34), flew out to support her last week.
She said that Louise was terrified for her child and wanted to go see her as soon as possible despite her family's concerns that they would never see her again if she flew to war-torn Syria.
"We're just absolutely devastated," Mandy said. "Louise just wants her baby back.
"But now we can't go anywhere. There are people watching the house and following us wherever we go.
"We will have to leave here.
"Louise has only lived here for eight years but Mostafa has been here for over 20 (years).
"He knows everybody.
"She's spoken to Mostafa on the phone.
"He seems to know everything she's done and everywhere she's gone.
"If we speak to the police he seems to know about it, anywhere we go he seems to know.
"We just want May back so we can go back to Ireland.
"Mostafa has said if she wants to see her again she has to come to Syria and live the life of a Muslim woman.
"She just wants to go because she will see her baby again," she added.
