Apparently, Aseel Muthana, a Yemeni-British man from Cardiff, was radicalized to follow his elder brother to travel to Da'ish.
He was encouraged by Forhad Rahman and two other extremists. According to the Gay Times, Muthana and Rahman exchanged flirty texts, with Rahman alledgedly calling Muthana a Welsh cutie.
When Police arrested the three extremists for supporting terrorism, they tried to stop the text exchanges from being made public, out of concern for Aseel Muthana's safety - what with him travelling to Da'ish, the possible gay nature of the texts, and Da'ish's hatred for gay people.
I don't know if this is true, but it seems as if it is. Where to start?
I don't think The Guardian will touch this one with a bargepole ...
