DIY Jihadi Hunters

Hosted by

Last Friday, the militant group the Islamic State posted another video of a beheading. This time the victim was British aid worker Alan Henning. While U.S. intelligence agencies work to identify members of Islamic extremist groups, there’s also a community of civilians working to track jihadists. We visit the world of the so-called “jihadi hunters,” and hear directly from one of them.
