BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:50 A.M.) – British journalist John Cantlie has been reported dead this morning in the recently liberated city of Mosul by a local Iraqi media outlet.

Al-Sura News Agency alleged on Friday that their ground team interviewed three captured Islamic State (ISIL) terrorists in Mosul that all confirmed the death of John Cantlie.

Cantlie was kidnapped in Syria in 2012 while reporting on the war from the northern part of the country.

The British journalist was later used by the Islamic State to report in their propaganda videos in the Mosul area of northwest Iraq.

While no confirmation has been made by the U.S. Coalition or Iraqi Armed Forces, Cantlie has not been heard of since December 2016, when ISIL released their last propaganda video with him in it.

Here’s your ‘more info’… ‘Cantlie’ is not his real name, and he was an MI6 troll. Sick.

Cantlie was his real name – as I worked with him for 6 years in publishing. Unlikely he was an MI6 troll. Why do you think so?

Hi Andy. Yup. I can confirm that’s his real name too. I also worked with him.
