By Fumbuka Ng'wanakilala Dar es Salaam (Reuters) - Mohammed Emwazi, the Briton identified as Islamic State killer "Jihadi John", was denied entry to Tanzania in 2009 at the request of British security services, a Tanzanian police source said on Tuesday. Security officers at Dar es Salaam airport refused to allow entry to Emwazi and two friends - another Briton and a German - because they were on an official immigration stop list, said the source who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity. Immigration officials said the request came from British intelligence rather than the international police organisation Interpol, the source added. "When Emwazi and his friends were told they would not be allowed to enter Tanzania, they caused a commotion and tried to force their way out of the airport," the source said.
