    SYDNEY: A Westerner pictured alongside Islamic State (IS) group fighters and dubbed “Britain’s white jihadi” is in fact an Australian teenager who converted to Islam, a report said on Monday. A photo of the meek-looking youth, holding a rifle and sitting in between two jihadists with a black IS flag in the background, emerged on Twitter in late December. At the time the militant group, which has run rampant through swathes of Iraq and Syria, hailed his recruitment as “a major coup” with the British media dubbing him “Britain’s white jihadi”. Doubts about the authenticity of the picture earlier emerged after a blogger claimed he had fabricated the image to hoax the British press.
