Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi is often described as the world’s most dangerous terrorist leader and heads the ISIS. In the The Guardian’s Long Read section, reporter Martin Chulov writes about one of the group’s founding members Abu Ahmed.

Here, we were not only safe, but we were only a few hundred metres away from the entire al-Qaida leadership.
