ISIS ‘CVs’ reveal British electrical engineer, Norwegian pilot and Turkish Nato officer

From an experienced electrical engineer at a British company to a Turkish Nato officer and a Norwegian helicopter pilot, leaked “CVs” of some of Isil’s most elite fighters reveal just how experienced the group’s foreign command are.

The files contain the names of 368 Islamic State fighters enrolled at a training camp for senior leaders near Raqqa in Syria.

The documents entitled “Camp Database” and dated June 2014 – around the time Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared the “caliphate” in Syria and Iraq – reveal an extraordinarily organised group from the moment of its inception.
