According to the Mirror Online, An Islamic State leader has given a startling frank interview about his life as one of the world’s most wanted jihadis.

Rachid Kassim, 29, has been linked to a string of terror attacks in Europe including the murder of a policeman and his partner near Paris and a Catholic priest near Normandy.

He is believed to have run an encrypted app called Telegram which spread advice on how to carry out atrocities until it was cracked by French intelligence services in September.

The French-born extremist has given an on-the-record interview for the first time to Amarnath Amarasingam, an academic based in Washington who specialises in jihadism research.

    “An Academic and Newspaper can Interview an ISIS Leader, but the CIA Can’t Catch Him?…Because HE is the CIA.
