Notorious British jihadist may have perished in IS death camp



He was one of four jihadists that the UK placed on a UN sanctions list, now the only trace of Abu Sa'eed al Britani is his name on a prison wall in an Islamic State death camp.
 
It is evidence he fell foul of the violent group he once glorified.


Born in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, Abu Sa'eed al Britani was originally called Omar Hussain.


He worked as a supermarket security man for Asda and Morrisons.


He left the UK for Syria in 2014. Once there, he used social media to encourage others to join IS for both combat and operational roles to create the "next generation" of fighters.


In August 2014 he told British media outlets he would only return to the UK to "plant a bomb".
