ISIS making millions selling drug that makes fighters feel fearless

 The Islamic State is making millions of dollars by selling a banned drug, that makes fighters feel 'fearless', to different parts of the Middle East, according to the United Nations. The amphetamine, known as Captagon, has been available since the 1960s and was used to treat attention deficit disorder. 

The drug masks feelings of pain, fear and hunger, while keeping fatigue at bay. The Paris attackers were thought to have taken Captagon before savagely killing 130 people in November. It was put on a list of controlled substances by the World Health Organisation in 1986.
