ISIS launches English-language radio news bulletins on its Iraq-based al-Bayan radio network. The network also broadcasts in Arabic and Russian. The nine-and-a-half minute broadcasts, which begin and end with traditional sounding Arabic music, is hosted by a man with an American accent. Content includes news about the group’s activities in Iraq, Syria and Libya and activities such as suicide bombings, mortar attacks, car bombings, destroying ‘idols’, and ‘martyrdom operations’.
