Islamic State militants in Sahel (ISGS) publish an (unofficial) video sentencing four thieves under Sharia law. The incident took place on May 17 in the Daewoo village area in northern Burkina Faso.
The speaker behind the camera is Abu Ibrahim (see second photo), a local jihadist commander who, according to some sources, is the successor to ISGS ‘Emir Abdelhakim al-Sahrawi (see third photo). In the video, he says: “Whoever steals, we cut off his hand! Whether you are a woman or a man! Whoever steals on the roads, we must kill him! We are not talking about prison! There are no prisons in the hadiths ”
