MIM: Give Jihadi wannabes a one way ticket and cancel their passport once they have boarded the plane instead of letting them walk around as ticking time bombs in the West.
Briton Kabir Ahmed 'among Iraq suicide bombing dead'
British man Kabir Ahmed is reported to have died while carrying out a suicide bombing in Iraq.
The Foreign Office has said it was "aware of reports of the death of a British national in Iraq".
There has been no confirmation of the death of Ahmed, also known as Abu Sammyh Al Brittani, who is from Derby.
Islamic State (IS) militants named him as being among the bombers who killed a senior Iraqi police official in Beiji, north of Baghdad.
The attack took place on Friday when a truck packed with explosives was driven into the convoy of Lt Gen Faisal Malik Zamel, who was inspecting forces in the town.
He was killed along with seven other police officers and 15 people who were wounded.Bombing 'waiting list'
Shiraz Maher, from the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation at King's College in London, which monitors social media accounts of alleged jihadists, said Ahmed was a 32-year-old father of two.
He wrote on Twitter: "British suicide bomber in Iraq, Abu Sumayyah (Kabir Ahmed) originally joined Jund al-Sham in Syria and then moved to Islamic State."
Earlier this year Ahmed told the BBC's Panorama programme that he was on a "waiting list" to be a suicide bomber, adding: "Everybody's got their name on the list... everybody wants to fight."
He had been jailed, alongside two others, in 2012 after being found guilty of stirring up hatred on the grounds of sexual orientation.
He had handed out a leaflet calling for homosexuals to be executed, saying he was doing his "duty as a Muslim".
If his death is confirmed, he would be the second British jihadist suicide bomber.
Abdul Waheed Majeed, a father-of-three from Crawley in West Sussex, died in February when he drove a truck bomb at the gates of Aleppo Prison in Syria.
