Fabien Clain, 41, a senior foreign member of the so-called Islamic State group who is reported to have been killed in an airstrike in Baghouz in Syria this week, came from the French Indian Ocean island of La Réunion and was radicalised in Toulouse, south-west France, before becoming active in a cell that sent jihadists to fight US troops in Iraq.
