The British son of the hate preacher Omar Bakri Mohammed is reported to have been executed while fighting with the terror group ISIS in Syria.
Mohammed Omar Bakri Mohammed is said to have died in Aleppo province in the north of Syria, with it claimed he was executed by ISIS for apostasy.
His father is a notorious hate preacher and the founder of the al-Qaeda-supporting Al-Muhajiroun network of Islamic extremists in the UK.
Bakri fled from the UK in the wake of the 5 July 2005 suicide bombings on the London Underground and re-surfaced in Lebanon. (He) is currently in Roumieh prison after being convicted of supporting terrorism following his arrest in a raid by security forces in April 2014. Yesterday, he was sentenced to serve an additional six years in prison with hard labour.
Bakri’s son is said to have left Tripoli in Lebanon to join ISIS over a year ago. A picture of him said to have been taken in Syria has been circulating on social media accounts.
One media report claimed that he was fighting under the name ‘Abu Ahmed the Lebanese’ and was executed by ISIS for ‘cursing the prophet Mohammad’.
The article included an image of an Arabic document, dated 29 August, which it claimed was an ISIS statement announcing his execution. This was due to apostasy – specifically, alleged links to the Turkish and Lebanese governments, which ISIS considers infidels.
