The British jihadist, nicknamed 'Jihadist John', has been identified by security services as 23 year old, ex-rapper Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary. According to The Times, who cited sources they did not identify, he was identified by the British Security Service and the Secret Intelligence Service. Prior to release of the Foley death video, Bary had posted a photo of himself on Twitter holding a severed head. Britain's Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said Sunday that the killing of Foley by a man speaking with an English accent was an "utter betrayal of our country". "It is horrifying to think that the perpetrator of this heinous act could have been brought up in Britain," Hammond wrote in an article published in the Sunday Times. "It is an utter betrayal of our country, our values and everything the British people stand for."
