Anjem Choudary’s poppy-burning bodyguard who became ISIS executioner found dead

Anjem Choudary's bodyguard has been killed in Syria, according to the latest reports.

Mohammed Reza Haque joined ISIS in 2014 after becoming a hate figure in the UK for burning a remembrance poppy outside the Royal Albert Hall nine years ago.

The 6ft 6 "Jihadi Giant" is believed to have killed in the final battle of Baghouz.

A source told Daily Mail: "He died, either in the final battle of Baghouz, or from his injuries shortly afterwards."

Haque was last seen in the UK working as a bodyguard for terror preacher Choudary at a demonstration.

He was also believed to be connected to terrorist plotters including Khurram Butt, the ringleader of the London Bridge attack in 2017.

Haque was charged with a public order offence following the Remembrance Day incident where he and his fellow extremists chanted "burn British soldiers, burn in hell" as the crowd observed a two-minute silence.

He went on to become a key figure in ISIS and a brutal executioner.

In 2016, he was unveiled as a masked jihadi, executing alleged spies by shooting them in the back of the head in a Syrian desert.

It is believed Haque took over from "Jihadi John" as one of the terror group's chief executioners after the leader was killed by a US drone strike.

Videos showed him beheading terrified victims with knives and sometimes, by guns.

In one incident he was filmed carrying out an execution to sinister chants in Arabic: "They thought they were safe.

Meanwhile Choudary has been released from jail last October after serving five-and-a-year sentence and is now at home in east London.
