Mohammaquisling? Brutal IS executioner is Norwegian

An Islamic State fighter who was filmed earlier this year decapitating a man in the Syrian city of Raqqa is Norwegian, Dagbladet newspaper has claimed.

The newspaper claims to know the real identity of the executioner, who goes by the name Abu Shahrazaad al-Narwegi, meaning ”from Norway” in Arabic, but does not reveal his real identity or place of origin.
Raqqa, the site of the execution, is the Islamic State headquarters, where the terror organisation is in complete control. The man who was executed is thought to be an ex-sharia judge who had attempted to flee Raqqa for Qatar.
