First Photo Of 'Jihadi John' As Adult Revealed

The first known photograph has emerged of Mohammed Emwazi - the Islamic State militant known as "Jihadi John" - as an adult.

Showing him with a goatee beard and wearing a Pittsburgh Pirates baseball cap, the image is revealed in student records from his time at the University of Westminster.
It comes after the 26-year-old who became the masked face of the notorious terror organization was identified as the figure seen in several videos of hostages being beheaded.
Also revealed are the details of Emwazi's academic achievements during his stint at the university in London's Cavendish campus, between 2006 and 2009.
According to the document, he passed all but two of the modules in his Information Systems with Business Management degree, for which he was awarded a lower second honours (2:2).

The 27-year-old went to St Mary Magdalene Church of England school in Maida Vale, west London

Gallery: Jihadi John's University Academic Record

Mohammed Emwazi, aka Jihadi John, studied a computing course at university.

His file shows mostly middling academic grades for his course modules. He graduated with a lower second (2.2) degree.
Emwazi is believed to be the British-accented man who has appeared in Islamic State beheading videos.

Pictures have also emerged of Emwazi from his school yearbook in 1996

 The record shows he was awarded a "condoned credit; retake" status for modules in Business Information Systems and Managing Business Organizations.
An unnamed classmate told The Sun newspaper that Emwazi, who reportedly came from a devout family, was the only Muslim in the class and would demonstrate Arabic writing to the class.
A personal friend in university has described him as a very gentle man and the advocacy group CAGE said the Kuwaiti-born Briton was "extremely kind" and "extremely gentle" but had been harassed by the UK security services.

  2. Hi PIC,
    I hit the publish button by mistake occasionally while working on the letters. I always catch it right away and revert to drafts but that is the reason part of the reply turns up on the sidebar.
