Kurds charge Muslim convert ‘Jihadi Jack’ with being member of ISIS

Mom’s so proud.

A man from Oxford who converted to Islam and travelled to Syria has been charged with being a member of islamic State.

Jack Letts, 21, dubbed “Jihadi Jack”, was arrested by Kurdish forces in northern Syria after fleeing the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) stronghold of Raqqa.

A statement from the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria (DFNS) – a self-declared autonomous region – said Mr Letts had been taken to a prison in Qamishli, Rojava, northern Syria.

England did not endorse Kurdish independence, sucks to be Jack.
