UK Muslim turned violent jihadi posts picture of home-made bombs on his Twitter page with a warning to Britain to ‘be afraid.’ Former Cardiff resident, Nasser Muthana, 20, also seen in a recent ISIS terrorist recruitment video, poses in front of a stack of IEDs.
National Headlines Nasser Muthana, 20, and his teenage brother Aseel, 17, are among an estimated 500 young men from Britain who have flown out to join the rebels in Syria. Another tweet promised to behead an enemy Muslim fighter
Nasser was one of three British Muslims who appeared in a chilling Isis recruitment video two weeks ago urging others to join them in the Jihad. He posted a chilling photograph on Tuesday showing a home-made weapon believed to be taken from an enemy Shia Muslim-and his plan to behead the captive fighter.

But his father Ahmed Muthana, 57, said he wants his children to come home “safe and well” from Syria-even if they are imprisoned for posting threats about bomb making. A man believed to be his son Aseel Muthana, 17, who left Britain in February to join his older brother Nasser, said he is willing to die for the cause.
Comments on a social media account, believed to be that of Reyaad Khan, include graphic references to the killing of a number of people. A photograph of the killings, understood to have been carried out by Isis, was posted on the same account.
