AN Irish Jihadi has blown himself up in a bomb-making factory in the city of Raqqa in Syria.

Muthenna Abu Taubah, 24, who defended the actions of terror group IS previously on social media blew himself up as well as his best friend in an accident in Raqqa, the so-called capital of the Islamic State.

Taubah, an alias name, described himself as 'half Irish, half Nigerian' before the accident and also attended school in London before opting to join IS.
