An ominous message delivered via Twitter. These sealed containers are believed to be homemade bombs, and were posted with the message: "So the UK is afraid I come back with the skills I gained."
British media are reporting that the account belongs to 20-year-old Nasser Muthana, a purported British recruit to ISIL.
In a recruiting video for the Sunni militant group, he goes by the name "Abu Muthanna Al Yemeni," and calls on others to join.
