The 23-year-old man of Somali background is believed to be the third Finnish citizen to die in the Syrian civil war. A YOUNG man from Espoo shares a picture in his last Facebook posting: participation in the jihad is equivalent to fifty pilgrimages to Mecca, it says. Roughly ten days later, on 7 June, the posts of his friends indicate that he, Muhammad (not his real name), has died. "May God accept him," reads a tweet embedded with a photo of the young man, known by his jihadist name Abu Mansuur Somali.
