“This could be the last thing we do in life.”
They’re the words of an Islamic State commander to a group of European men in rare, raw footage obtained by ITV News.
The video was filmed in 2013, notably before the caliphate was declared and at a point when Isis recruitment was on the rise.
Many questions arose from the footage: where was it filmed, who is the man speaking and who are the crowd listening? Plus – most curiously – why is a British ambulance at the scene?
An ITV News investigation answered them all.
