The family of an IS fighter from Manchester who carried out a suicide attack in Iraq said he was "peaceful and gentle" before he was sent to Guantanamo Bay and disputed he received £1m in compensation from the British government.Copyright: BBC
Jamal al-Harith, 50, who blew himself up at an Iraqi army base in Mosul this week was originally known as Ronald Fiddler.
The family said in a statement "the Jamal they knew up until 2001" when he was taken to Guantanamo Bay would not have become involved with a "despicable" organisation such as the so-called Islamic State.
The family who last heard from him in 2014 said he was "utterly changed by the physical and mental cruelty and the inhuman treatment he endured for two years at Guantanamo Bay".
The family added the £1m compensation was a "group settlement including costs for four innocent people" including al-Harith freed from Guantanamo Bay in 2004.
