The Sun reports:
One of ISIS’ most feared executioners has been captured by Iraqi security forces, according to reports.
The jihadi kingpin – nicknamed “White Beard” – is said to have presided over dozens of k*llings in the terror group’s former stronghold of Mosul.
But now the bearded killer has been nabbed after locals revealed his hiding place in the city, according to AhlulBayt News Agency.
The sick jihadi, identified as Abu Omer, was one of the terror group’s most fearsome henchmen.
He was reportedly present when homosexuals were thrown from buildings and victims b*headed and stoned to de*th for minor offenses.
The evil terror boss is allegedly seen in several sick execution videos filmed before the group’s self-proclaimed Caliphate in Syria and Iraq collapsed.
In one such clip from March 2015, three men accused of homosexuality and blasphemy are forced to their knees and publicly b*headed.
The blindfolded men are seen kneeling in the center of what appears to be a roundabout in front of a crowd of people as a masked executioner stands by with a long, rusty blade.
An elderly man that appears to be Omer addresses the crowd as the executioner positions his sword above the men’s heads in the unnamed city in northern Iraq.
Other snaps seem to show him inspecting a pile of rocks ahead of a brutal public stoning.
CBS News reports:
U.S. officials say special operations forces have captured a key militant in the 2012 Benghazi attack on a U.S. consulate that left four Americans d*ad, CBS News national security correspondent David Martin confirms.
A U.S. official identified the suspect as Mustafa al-Imam, Martin reports.
The commandos captured the man in Libya just before midnight local time on Sunday and are transporting him back to the U.S., officials told The Associated Press. The suspect is in the custody of the Department of Justice and is expected to arrive within the next two days on a military plane, according to one of the officials.
The officials said the mission was approved by President Donald Trump and done in coordination with Libya’s internationally recognized government. The officials, who weren’t authorized to speak publicly to the matter and demanded anonymity, would not say where exactly he was captured.
