John Cantlie, the British journalist taken hostage by Isis, appears to have written an article in the extremist group’s magazine in which he promotes its new currency.
Cantlie, 43, was kidnapped with US journalist James Foley in November 2012. While Foley was brutally beheaded by the group’s fighters earlier this year, Cantlie remains a hostage and has appeared in a number of propaganda videos in which he espouses the group’s beliefs and criticises Western powers.
The piece, entitled ‘Meltdown’, appears as the final article in the sixth issue of the group’s Dabiq propaganda magazine, and carries his name on the byline.
