NHS doctor from Sheffield travelled to Syria to join Isis

Leaked Isis recruitment documents suggest an NHS doctor left his family in the UK to join Isis in Syria.

Issam Abuanza, 37, left his wife and two children at home in Sheffield to travel to Syria in 2014, the BBC reports.

After crossing in to Syria, he filled out a registration form, telling his Isis handlers he was a doctor specialising in endocrinology – the diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to hormones.
