Sheikh Sulaiman Abu Haraz was kidnapped by Islamic State gunmen from outside his house in Arish city in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.

The sheikh, who was 100 years old, was reportedly a well-respected Sufi leader in the Sinai.

He was accused by the group of practicing “witchcraft.” ISIS-Sinai (as Ansar-Bayt al-Maqdis now style themselves) released a series of pictures on social media of the execution. They  show the sheikh kneeling and surrounded by armed men and an executioner. The final image is of his severed head in the sand covered in blood.
