He holds a college degree in computer programming and is believed to have traveled to Syria in 2012, where he joined up with ISIS.

A close friend of Emwazi who spoke to Washington Post anonymously said: “I have no doubt that Mohammed is Jihadi John. He was like a brother to me. . . . I am sure it is him.”
