‘Jihadi John’ says sorry to family after identity revealed
But the ISIS executioner did not show remorse for beheading at least five Westerners
Infamous ISIS executioner “Jihadi John,” who was recently identified as Mohammed Emwazi, has reportedly apologized to his parents for bringing shame to the family.
The Kuwait-born Emwazi was identified by media and experts late in February as the knife-wielding masked man appearing in beheading videos posted online by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
According to a Sunday Times report, Emwazi conveyed his apologies for the “problems and trouble the revelation of his identity has caused” to his parents and siblings.
Emwazi, a British computer-science graduate, had conveyed his message from Syria via a third party, the newspaper said.
But the 26-year-old executioner did not show remorse for beheading at least five Westerners previously held hostage by ISIS.
Emwazi’s family, originally from Kuwait, have been forced into hiding after he was identified as Jihadi John.
