The name “Abu Hurairah Finlandi” has been used by a Isis militant of Pakistani descent from the Finnish west coast city of Pori. Last winter and spring he sent a number of threatening online messages to individuals including Finns Party members and to the Finnish government.

Over the weekend, a large number of Twitter accounts reposted an announcement in Arabic stating that Abu Hurairah Finlandi has driven an explosives-laden Hummer into an Iraqi army barracks near Baiji in northern Iraq.

Finland’s National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) investigated the threats made in the name of Abu Hurairah Finlandi, but as of the start of this autumn had not determined his whereabouts, or even if he was still alive.

On Sunday evening, the NBI declined any further comment.
