ISIL’s masked man allegedly a Briton named ‘Sid’


DOHA (Al Jazeera): The masked man in an Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) video showing the killing of five men accused of being Western spies is believed to be a Londoner known as “Sid” who was associated with hard-line groups. Siddhartha Dhar – who left Britain for Syria while on police bail after his arrest on suspicion of belonging to a banned group and encouraging terrorism – has been identified by UK media as the spokesman in ISIL’s latest death film. Since leaving Britain, Dhar – who once sold inflatable bouncy castles – gained further attention through online videos in which he extolled life under ISIL.
