Cardiff hacker was 'key link' for Islamic State

A Cardiff-based businessman who became a computer hacker for the so-called Islamic State (IS) has been killed in a US-led coalition air strike in Syria.

The Pentagon said Siful Haque Sujan, originally from Bangladesh, was killed near the city of Raqqah on 10 December.

Sujan supported IS hacking efforts, anti-surveillance technology and weapons development for the jihadist group.

Pentagon spokesman Army Colonel Steve Warren described him as "a key link between networks".
