Since leaving Australia to join ISIS in Syria, Khaled Sharrouf has beheaded suspected spies, married his 13-year-old daughter off to a fellow fighter and shared gruesome images of his seven-year-old son holding a severed human head.
The depraved jihadi used his brother’s passport to fly to the Middle East in 2013 with his ‘best friend’ Mohammed Elomar who later married – and possibly impregnated – his daughter Zaynab.
His wife Tara Nettleton and their five children followed him to the war-torn country in February last year. They are now in the middle of a fierce national debate as to whether they should be allowed to return home.
Sharrouf and Elomar – who are both accused of raping captured Yazidi slave girls – have since posted pictures of themselves posing with bloodied corpses and automatic weapons.
