Intelligence officials are zeroing in on members of the Islamic State who may have been responsible for the beheading of photojournalist James Foley. Three suspects have emerged.
23-year-old Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary is a rapper from West London. He is pictured below holding a severed head.
Abu Abdullah al-Britani, pictured below, is another suspect who could be responsible for the brutal slaying of Foley. He is in his mid 20’s and hails from Portsmouth, England. He was jailed in 2012 for stealing personal information from former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
The third suspect is Adel Abdul Bary. He is one of six children of an Egyptian militant, who was wanted in connection to the 1998 United States embassy bombings in East Africa which killed hundreds of people.
The sick Muslim extremist who ended Foley’s life was left-handed and spoke with a British accent. Other hostages who were held captive alongside the journalist have been able to offer clues as to who might have been the one to behead him. U.S. and British intelligence officials are currently working together to uncover more information.
