Having previously been identified to be in one of four locations, a security expert has claimed that the world’s most wanted man is in a remote region of Eastern Afghanistan.
ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s location was narrowed down to just four locations after the terrorist group released a propaganda video featuring him for the first time in five years.
Believed to have fled his hide-out in either, Syria or Iraq – both former ISIS strongholds – Zaid Hamid, a founding member of the BrassTacks threat analysis think tank said he could already be in Afghanistan.
The assassination of Jihadhi John was a “personal” not a strategic goal, spy chiefs have admitted as they detailed the painstaking methods used to catch him.
Robert Hannigan, a former director of GCHQ, revealed that vein-recognition technology and voice analysis led the security services to identify Mohammed Emwazi “within hours” of a video depicting his masked face and crucially, his hands, emerging on social media.
“We had a race to find out who he was — his size, his hands, but, above all, his voice, made identifying him quite easy,” he said.
“Around 9 a.m., during a mass, armed individuals burst into the Catholic Church. They started firing as the churchgoers tried to flee,” Dablo Mayor Ousmane Zongo told AFP.
British spies identified Jihadi John within hours of viewing his first beheading video by examining his posture, accent and even the veins in the knife-wielding hand, it has been revealed.
Analysts at GCHQ knew Mohammed Emwazi was the terrorist seen threatening the West after beheading American journalist, James Foley, in scenes that shocked the world when first broadcast in August 2014.
GCHQ used recordings of his voice from previous wire taps taken during a three-year surveillance operation and compared it to the disguised voice used in the ISIS video.
Killing, apparently, is not on the list of Ramadan no-nos.
For many Sri Lankans, it was a horrific shock to learn that local Muslims could have been behind the suicide attacks that killed more than 250 people last month. How could a small group have planned such a devastating wave of bombings undetected?
The clues were there in mid-January, when Sri Lankan police stumbled upon 100kg (220lb) of explosives and 100 detonators, hidden in a coconut grove near the Wilpattu national park, which is a remote wilderness in Puttalam district on the west coast of the country.
Police were investigating attacks on statues of the Buddha by suspected Islamist radicals elsewhere in the country. Four men from a newly formed “radical Muslim group” were arrested.
Ryhan Ali – will stab you to death to please Mohammedan death cult idol
A Muslim thug who threatened to gun down and stab staff and audience members at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre because ‘he hated the English’ has been spared jail.
Ryhan Ali, 23, launched into an expletive-ridden tirade and told shocked theatre employees that he was ‘going to get a gun and kill English pigs’ and called them ‘scum’.
And when police arrived to arrest him, he branded an officer a ‘racist white c***’
An engaged couple have been captured on CCTV enjoying a stroll along London Bridge just seconds before the bride-to-be was killed by a terrorists’ van.
Social worker Christine Archibald, 30, told fiance Tyler Ferguson she loved him and gave him a ‘passionate’ kiss not realising that at the same moment a rented Renault Master ‘hurtled’ towards them.
Ms Archibald and her fiance were walking across the bridge after they had been for dinner at a Thai restaurant during a weekend visit to the capital on June 3, 2017.
The Muslim American Society (MAS) Philadelphia chapter had a clear message after a shocking video showed up on its Facebook page last month showing school children lip-syncing to a pro-jihad song that called for beheading and torturing Israelis.
We have nothing to do with it, MAS-Philadelphia said in a statement condemning the video’s content.
An ‘evil’ boyfriend who raped his partner and forced her to watch Islamic videos to ‘become a better girlfriend’ has been jailed for 12 years.
Mohammed Khan, rapes for Allah.
Mohammed Khan, from Smethwick, West Midlands, subjected his 21-year-old victim to regular beatings and sexual attacks over an 18-month period, launching into a violent rage just days after they became a couple in 2016.
On one occasion he pinned her by the throat against a wardrobe and on another he chipped several of her teeth after punching her in the face as they sat in his car.
Last April he orally raped her following a violent argument.
Police shot dead wounded London Bridge terrorists as they writhed on the street moments after one of them wiped victims’ blood off his knife with his BEARD, inquest hears
The leader of the London Bridge attackers ran his knife under a tap to clean off the blood after stabbing two kneeling victims, then wiped it on his beard before continuing his attack, an inquest has heard.
Khuram Butt, 27, Rachid Redouane, 30, and Youssef Zaghba, 22, ploughed into pedestrians on the bridge then attacked random members of the public with pink 12in ceramic knives.
Footage released today shows their white hire van crossing the famous bridge seconds before it mounted the pavement.
Asia Bibi was dragged out of her house, beaten, and arrested in front of an angry mob.
Accused of blasphemy, she would never return to her village.
After a decade-long ordeal, Asia is finally free.
Free so long as some devout Liberal Party member doesn’t find out where she lives. Britain denied Asia Bibi sanctuary because the government feared that the Muslims inside its gates would rampage.
Asia Bibi ‘not offered UK asylum amid concerns of unrest and attacks’
We hear so often about Muslims as victims of abuse in the West and combatants in the Arab Spring’s fight against tyranny. But, in fact, a wholly different kind of war is underway—an unrecognized battle costing thousands of lives. Christians are being killed in the Islamic world because of their religion. It is a rising genocide that ought to provoke global alarm.
The portrayal of Muslims as victims or heroes is at best partially accurate. In recent years the violent oppression of Christian minorities has become the norm in Muslim-majority nations stretching from West Africa and the Middle East to South Asia and Oceania. In some countries it is governments and their agents that have burned churches and imprisoned parishioners. In others, rebel groups and vigilantes have taken matters into their own hands, murdering Christians and driving them from regions where their roots go back centuries.
A terrorist washed his knife and wiped it on his beard in a “chilling gesture” after killing eight people at London Bridge and Borough Market, an inquest has heard.

The terrorists’ movements were part of harrowing footage showing the London Bridge terror attack unfolding in real time has been played at the inquests into the eight victims’ deaths.
