The man had been accused of "purposefully killing a Muslim to take his money," according to reports, during an alleged trial, apparently set up in a Sharia court by the terror cell The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

The group is said to hand out punishment in the city of Rakka.

An intelligence source told The Sun: "The aim is to generate fear. Justice does not come into it."
