British terror suspect who received a seven-figure payoff after being released from Guantanamo Bay died when he detonated explosives during a suicide bombing in Iraq, according to reports on Tuesday.

The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack and praised Abu-Zakariya al-Britani, a British suicide bomber, for exploding a vehicle full of explosives near Mosul, where Iraqi forces are battling IS fighters for control of the city.
