    A British Islamic State fighter known as Abu Musa al-Britani has blown himself up in the Iraqi city of Ramadi, Charlie Winter, a researcher at the Quilliam Foundation, said Friday, citing ISIL media channels.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In the past few days, ISIL has carried out a number of suicide attacks in Ramadi, targeting government buildings, including the education department and police headquarters.

    The Islamic State, a Sunni insurgent group controlling large swathes of Syria and Iraq, has recruited thousands of Westerners.

    On Thursday, Scotland Yard announced that as many as 700 British potential terror suspects have traveled to Syria to join rebel groups there, such as the Islamic State.

    According to the London-based International Center for the Study of Radicalization and Political Violence, more than 600 Britons are currently fighting alongside the ISIL in Syria and Iraq.
