ISIL leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi has been compared to a chicken by
Dubai’s head of security, it was reported on Wednesday.

Lieutenant General Dahi Khalfan bin Tamim, head of General Security for
the Emirate of Dubai, said catching ISIL should be “easier” than catching as
chicken.

According to 7Days, Bin Tamim – who was head of Dubai Police from 1980
to 2013 – made the remark as part of a series of tweets criticising
international governments for failing to bring the terrorist group to justice, 7Days newspaper reported.

He tweeted: “Where is the Calipha Al Baghdadi? Catching Al Baghdadi is
easier than catching a chicken.”

He added: “There is a global failure to arrest Al Baghdadi. Who is
behind not arresting Al Baghdadi?”

One Twitter user replied: “The words are easy to say… the east united
with the west to arrest Al Baghdadi and nobody has arrested him yet.”
