ISIS' Chief Executioner 'Stabbed And Killed' In Ambush In Iraq

A man who has beheaded more than 100 people for the Islamic State has been stabbed to death in an ambush in Iraq, according to reports.

ISIS' chief executioner - who goes by the nickname of Abu Saayaf, meaning 'father of swordsmith' - became infamous as a decapitator after appearing in a number of videos and earning a reputation for collecting the heads of victims and then dumping them in a hole in the region of al-Khasafa.

He is said to have been attacked and killed by an unknown group while leading ISIS in the Nineveh State.

An Iraqi journalist told ARA News: "Abu Sayyaf was one of the scariest executioners in Nineveh. He was known for his huge body and heavy arms.

"He was one of the renowned faces in the ISIS propaganda videos."

Abu Sayyaf is also the name for a Philippines-based branch of ISIS, which is also famed for beheadings and kidnappings.
