British intelligence officials have reportedly identified the British Jihadi fighter who is suspected of murdering American journalist James Foley, according to The Sunday Times.

The masked man with a London accent is known to fellow fighters as “Jihadi John”, was seen in the shocking video of Foley’s death released by the Isis extremist army last week.

While sources gave no details of the man they have identified, a key suspect is Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, 23, who left his family’s £1m home in Maida Vale, west London, last year. He recently tweeted a picture of himself holding up a severed head.

British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond warns of strikes on UK saying that Isis is turning Iraq and Syria into a terrorist hub for launching attacks against the west.
