The ‘super jihadist’ who has recruited 80% of ISIS’s French-speaking militants

A ‘super jihadist’ has recruited 80% of ISIS’s French-speaking militants with propaganda videos featuring rap music and Hollywood-style editing, according to French authorities.

Omar Omsen, also known as ‘Omar Diaby’, was born in Senegal but grew up in Nice.

The 41-year-old moved to Syria in 2013 and is now seen by his followers as a spiritual leader.
