The masked, knife-wielding man known as ‘Jihadi John’ who appeared in Islamic State beheading videos has been identified.
It’s been disclosed that his name is Mohammed Emwazi.
He appeared, clad in black, in footage that showed him decapitating the American journalist James Foley and others.
Mohammed Emwazi is in his mid-twenties.
He was born in Kuwait, but educated in London.
