German rapper-turned-IS jihadi Denis Cuspert reportedly killed in Syria

Denis Cuspert, a former Berlin rapper known in jihadi circles as “the German,” has been killed in Syria, a pro “Islamic State” (IS) media site website reported.

SITE intelligence group, a US-based company that tracks online extremist media, reported that pro-IS Wafa Media announced the death of the Berlin-born former rapper who used to go by the stage name “Deso Dogg.”

Cuspert was previously reported killed by a US airstrike in Syria in 2015, before the Pentagon backtracked and said he was only wounded.
