A Brit tourist was targeted by ISIS fanatics before they killed two hikers in Morocco but escaped with his life by telling them he was Muslim.
The four jihadists were looking to kill Western tourists in the remote Atlas Mountains when they spotted the elderly Brit walking downhill.
They befriended him then asked him what religion he was.
He told them he was Muslim and they allowed him on his way.
An hour later on December 16 the Moroccan men spotted Maren Ueland, 28, from Norway, and her Danish friend Louisa Jespersen, 24. They killed both. One was beheaded on video.
Morocco counter-terror chief Abdelhak Khiam revealed arrested suspects told them of the Brit.
He said: “We don’t know if he was really Muslim or just scared of the guys with beards.”
