Authorities get names of 22,000 IS recruits

A MEMORY stick that reportedly contains the names and contact information of 22,000 IS members has been forwarded to authorities in England after being stolen from an IS leader.

Sky News in the UK, which obtained the memory stick, said it was stolen from the head of IS's internal security police by a disillusioned IS recruit.

The UK Daily Mail reported that recruits from at least 51 countries had been ordered by IS to fill out a questionnaire before they could join the organisation.

Date of birth, marital status, previous jobs, fighting experience and contact details for next of kin were among the 23 questions on the form.

The information is reportedly authentic and expected to be invaluable in tracking down jihadists who have returned home.
