Islamic State Jihadist from Canada Killed in Iraq


Farah Mohammed Shirdon of Calgary, Canada, has reportedly been identified as having died fighting in the ranks of the extremist Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) terrorist group in Iraq, where it has been committing brutal atrocities.

Shirdon, whose family originally is from Somalia, appeared in an IS video months ago in April, in which he tore up his Canadian passport and threatened terror attacks on Canada and the US.
