Officials: Voice in ISIS VIdeo Is French Man Fabien Clain
Frenchman Fabien Clain, who lives in Raqqa, Syria, is leading the propaganda efforts for ISIS. Officials believe Clain is connected to the attacks.
Clain has been in Syria since 2014. Clain was behind a plot to attack a church in Villejuif in April.
The Independent reported:
A Frenchman has been reportedly been identified as one of the people speaking in Isis propaganda referencing the Paris attacks, with a police source saying it is “probably him”.
According to Le Figaro, the voice is believed to be that of Fabien Clain, an active member of the Islamist scene who is currently based in Raqqa.
The 35-year-old has been in Syria since February 2014, where he is believed to be part of a cell that produces and distributes Isis propaganda.
Clain was strongly linked to a group that gravitated around the entourage of Mohamed Merah, the man who gunned down three French soldiers before attacking a Jewish school in Toulouse in 2012, where he killed three children and a rabbi.
In 2014 ISIS announced at least 500 of their fighters came from France.
