Jihadi Jack’ ranted about decapitating school friend who joined army, court hears

Home Affairs Correspondent

A Muslim convert who has been dubbed “Jihadi Jack” ranted about decapitating an old school friend after finding out he was in the British Army.

The Old Bailey has been told that despite Jack Letts’ apparent online outburst, his supportive parents still tried to help him.

His mother and father are on trial for sending him money even though they knew it was likely that he had joined the so-called Islamic State.
