Maida Vale rapper 'fighting in Syria for Islamic State'

A picture has been posted on social media, which reportedly shows a man from west London holding a severed head after fighting in Syria.

Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, 23, is a former rapper from Maida Vale.

It is claimed he left his family home last year to join the militant group "Islamic State", formerly known as ISIS.
