Sweden paid the equivalent of more than £4,300 in welfare to an Islamic State terrorist as he fought with the Jihadist group in their Syrian stronghold of Aleppo.
Swedish Muslim convert Michael Skråmo left for Syria with his wife and four small children in August 2014, and now goes by the name Abdul Samad al Swedi.
Since then, he has appeared in a series of propaganda videos, sometimes alongside his children, brandishing a Kalashnikov assault rifle.
It is claimed the family had been living off handouts of £627 (5,814 Kroner) a month.
However, according to Sweden’s Göteborgs Tidning (GT), it took more than a year for Sweden’s welfare agency, Försäkringskassan, to suspend his generous welfare handouts after he became a terrorist.
The agency recently sent a letter to Mr. Skråmo’s Gothenburg address, informing him that his child and housing benefit had been discontinued.
