Islamic State makes violent video game to recruit young fighters

Islamic State jihadists are believed to have released a new recruiting video based on a notoriously violent computer game.

The mocked-up Grand Theft Auto-style trailer is designed to attract younger members and features virtual fighters shouting “Allahu Akbar!” as they attack U.S. troops.

Throughout, the terror group’s logo is displayed at the top of the screen, alongside the apparent “GTA” styling.

According to Islamic State’s media wing, the video aims to “raise the morale of the mujahedin and to train children and youth how to battle the West and to strike terror into the hearts of those who oppose the Islamic State”.
