The comedians mocking ISIS from inside Syria and Iraq
so-called Islamic State (IS) has used social media to draw in recruits and spread its militant message, but what happens when satirists fight back?
A group of Iraqi and Syrian comedians, some of whom live in areas controlled by ISIS, are mocking the extremists online. In one skit, the ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi appears as the animated star of the "Bigh Daddy Show".
One of the comedians talked to BBC Trending about the group's aims.They are taking some pretty big risks and are surely on the ISIS hit list by now. Perhaps they were encouraged by the bravery of the satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo of Paris who stood their ground against Muslim extremists.
Wherever your courage is coming from, the world applauds you. Stay strong, you have friends. Eventually evil consumes itself.
