An Iraqi grandmother claims to be one of the people most feared by Isis and has received personal death threats from the group’s leader.

Wahida Mohamed Al-Jumaily, 39, said she has beheaded and cooked the heads of Isis fighters to avenge the deaths of her family.

Isis killed her second husband earlier this year and has previously killed her father and three brothers.

Better known as Um Hanadi, she leads a 70-strong militia in the fight against Isis in the recently liberated town of Shirqat, which sits 50 miles south of the Isis’ Iraq stronghold of Mosul.

A third photo appears to show her standing among headless bodies which have been burned.
