New Zealand militant accidentally tweets his Syria location, tracked by Canadian firm

A jihadist from New Zealand who has joined the Islamic State in Syria, has accidentally given up his exact location by sending out tweets, according to a Canadian intelligence group.The extremist has deleted the tweets.

Mohammad Daniel, also known as Abu Abdul Rahman, and formerly known as Mark John Taylor sent out more than 45 tweets documenting his whereabouts before realizing that it may have been a mistake.

“Unfortunately for him we captured all of them prior to him removing the tweets and will discuss the value of the intelligence they contained,” Canada-based open source intelligence research group iBRABO, which spotted the failure, said in a press-release.
