‘Dead’ Kosovar Albanian IS Militant Resurfaces In Gruesome Killing Video

In August, media in the Balkans reported with some relief that Lavdrim Muhaxheri, a notorious Islamic State (IS) militant, had been killed in an air strike in Syria.

An ethnic Albanian from Kacanik in Kosovo, Muhaxheri caused outrage in his home country in July when he posted grisly photographs of himself on Facebook appearing to behead a man.

But although Muhaxheri has been presumed dead for some months, new evidence has raised speculation that the militant could be very much alive.
