The charges are horrific.
Twenty-five people — including 20 members of the same clan — murdered in cold blood for refusing to join the ISIS death cult.
The dead included women and children.
Now, the suspected mastermind of the slaughter has been charged with crimes against humanity.
The 27-year-old who orchestrated the bloodshed — known only as F. Hassan — personally beheaded the imam of a small town in Syria in 2015 as ISIS tried to establish their ill-fated caliphate.
Hassan is also accused of murdering two others, including a man shot in the head with a handgun. The family of 20 were all beheaded.
Hungarian prosecutors have accused him of the crimes against humanity.
The charges were revealed Tuesday in Budapest after a lengthy investigation. He was arrested last December when he arrived at the airport with bogus identity papers.
Hassan was about to be deported back to Greece where he has refugee status but then investigators uncovered evidence he was linked to the Syrian massacre.
Prosecutors want Hassan locked up for the rest of his natural life.
They say he helped draw up a “hit list” of people who refused to join ISIS.
Prior to arriving in Hungary, Hassan also visited a number of other European countries, Hungary’s Counter-Terrorism Centre said. The countries were not named.
As part of the effort to cleanse the small town, Hassan and another jihadi beheaded the local imam in front of the entire population.
Anyone who failed to join ISIS after the barbaric display was executed.
