The Islamic State has reportedly murdered a journalist who wrote about life in the ISIS-occupied Syrian city of Raqqa. Ruqia Hassan was reportedly killed in September, but activists say ISIS hijacked her social media accounts and used them to claim she was alive. A member of the activist group Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently said that before her death, Hassan said, “I’m in Raqqa and I received death threats, and when Isis [arrests] me and kills me it’s ok because … I have dignity. Its better than [living] in humiliation with Isis.” Hassan was 30 years old.
