I haven’t seen the Global News report but good on them for setting this up.
Filmed on Skype… the chilling exchange between reporter posing as a child and Islamic State fighter from London who told her: ‘When I pick you up, I am going to be picking you up as my wife’
A British jihadi who went to Syria to fight for terror group Islamic State (IS) has been caught on camera attempting to lure an underage girl to join him and become his bride.
In chilling messages, the man identifies himself only under a false name – Abu Antar – and gives step-by-step instructions for how the girl he believes to be just 15 years old can slip away from her family by pretending she is sleeping at a friend’s house and then embark on a dangerous journey to the Middle East region occupied by IS fighters.
Antar groomed the teenager for over a week through video conversations and messages over the internet. At one point he told her: ‘When I pick you up, I am going to be picking you up as my wife.’
