Norway’s Police Security Service (PST) launched an investigation Tuesday into Bastián Vásquez, a Norwegian of Chilean descent featured in an English-language video released by a jihadist group at the center of bloody conflict in the Middle East.

Vásquez — also known as Abu Safiyya — is the protagonist in a 15 minute video released by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) on the website Liveleaks on Sunday. In English, Vásquez explains that ISIS had captured a checkpoint on the border between Iraq and Syria following a battle in which he claims several border patrol soldiers were killed. The video shows a room containing more than a dozen captive soldiers, and ends with a shot of a police station being razed to the ground by explosives.

Dear Bastian, enjoyed our interaction!
