British media are reporting that the country’s intelligence services have identified the executioner of American photojournalist James Foley.

According to the Sunday Times, MI5 and MI6 have worked out the identity of the masked beheader, known by his comrades as John. No further details have been disclosed but a key suspect is a 23-year-old rapper from west London named Abdel-Majed Abdel-Bary. He went to Syria last year to join the Takfiri insurgents and later tweeted a picture of himself holding up a severed head. Invigorators say Abdel-Bary has a similar accent to the man who decapitated Foley and has a similar build and skin tone. Last week, the ISIL released a propaganda video showing a militant beheading the kneeling journalist who went missing in Syria two years ago.
