SINGAPORE (AFP) – A Singaporean member of the Islamic State group in Syria has appeared in a video challenging Britain’s Prince Harry to fight the jihadists. In the video released on Saturday, a man identified as “Abu Uqayl” from Singapore took issue with Prince Harry talking about a terror attack in London while on a visit to Singapore in June. “Why don’t you come here and fight us if you’re man enough, so that we can send you and your Apaches to hellfire, biidhnillah (Allah permitting)?” he said in the video. Singapore’s Ministry of Home Affairs said: “Our security agencies have been aware for some time now of the presence in Syria of a Singaporean, Megat Shahdan bin Abdul Samad, 39, and have been monitoring his activities. It is believed the person in the video calling himself ‘Abu Uqayl’ is Shahdan.”
