ISIS head Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi bans beheading videos but not the beheadings

ISIS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has issued a decree banning the barbaric execution videos his militants have become famous for – because he’s worried about their image.

al-Baghdadi is said to have sent a letter to all of his media offices saying they were no longer allowed to show graphic, violent scenes in their carefully edited videos, which caught the attention of the wider world with the emergence of ‘Jihadi John’ in 2014.

He is said to have claimed the decision was based on not offending other Muslims, who might think the videos are scary for children.
