Islamic State group’s notorious executioner Mohammad Emnawazi dubbed as ‘Jihadi John’ has in a newly released video revealed his face for the first time and vowed to return to Britain and carry on cutting off heads.

In a recent one-minute 17-second video released by the terrorist group, Emnawazi , 27, who is responsible for several beheadings including two Britons and at least seven hostages in Syria, promised a return to England.

Dressed in black and wearing a cap underneath his hood, the video shows him staring into the camera before he glances away to scan the desert after which the Londoner says in a clear British accent that he will carry on beheading people.
