The Australian’s Paul Maley and Dan Box have a story today on the identity of Australia’s first Suicide Bomber.
A man identified on social media as an Australian recently blew himself up outside a military airport in Syria. He was fighting with the al-Nusra Front, an al-Qa’ida-affiliated Syrian rebel group.
According to the report, Australian anti-terrorism authorities now think he is a man named Ahmed from Brisbane, who has a wife, at least one brother and maybe a child. His last name could not be published for legal reasons.
He was known to Federal Police, who have been tracking the increasing number of Australian’s participating in Syria’s civil war.
