The masked executioner in the latest ISIS propaganda video is believed to be a British man who fled London in 2014 after skipping bail, NBC News has learned.
Two U.S. officials tell NBC that the British-born Siddhartha Dhar is suspected of being the man in the video, which purports to show him killing five people accused of being spies.
Dhar, a father of four, fled Britain in 2014 while out on bail after being arrested on suspicion of encouraging terrorism. He is believed to have traveled to Syria.
British Shadow Home Secretary Andy Burnham has called the case a “serious lapse in security.” Dhar had been ordered to turn in his passport, but instead he used it to depart the country on a bus to Paris, en route to Syria.
