ISIS insurgents have executed 100-year-old man Sheikh Sulaiman Abu Haraz for allegedly practicing witchcraft. Images released by the Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis – an ISIS-affiliated extremist group in Egypt – show that the elderly cleric was tied before being executed.

He is seen wearing an orange jumpsuit, which is modelled on those worn by Guantanamo Bay inmates. The second image shows his chopped off head.

He was kidnapped from his home in Arish at gun point. He was said to be one of the symbolic Sufi clerics and elders of the Sinai Peninsula.


The practice of any form of magic is said to be a taboo in Islamic culture.
