Brit tourist escaped ISIS killers who murdered two hikers by telling the jihadists he was Muslim

A BRIT tourist was targeted by IS 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.
