Brit plans one way trip to violent tribes island after Taliban adventure

A British war tourist who is currently sofa surfing with the Taliban in Afghanistan has announced he intends to visit the notoriously violent tribe of North Sentinel island.

Miles Routledge, a physics student at Loughborough University previously visited Ukraine at the start of Putin's invasion and is documenting his experiences with the "kind" Taliban.

But seemingly not satisfied with his current digs, the Birmingham native has vowed to go one step further and travel to possibly the most dangerous place on Earth.

Taking to Twitter, Miles proclaimed: "Need ideas for the future. What's the most dangerous daring adventure that I could realistically do on a budget?

"I've planned North Sentinel Island but that'll take so much money and I'd need to be bigger in order to get away with it."

Of course, there's only one problem, North Sentinel Island is considered so hostile nobody is allowed to go anywhere near it.

Located in the Indian Ocean, the island is home to 400 members of an Indigenous tribe that have been known to kill visitors on sight, no matter how many Twitter followers they may have.

In fact, Indian authorities believe the ancient isle is so dangerous that they have made it illegal for anyone to go within three miles of the island.

Little is known about the indigenous Sentinelese who have lived on the island for more than 60,000 years despite numerous attempts to explore the area.

Throughout the years, there have been many tragic incidents involving the tribe and people who have ventured too close.

In 2006, two men were killed by the tribe as they fished nearby and the islanders have also been documented throwing stones and shooting arrows at passing planes and helicopters.

The last known person to have visited the island was Christian missionary John Allen Chou who was killed by the islanders in 2018.

Reacting to the news, that Miles was even contemplating a short trip (and it would be short) to the island, his devoted followers were both delighted and concerned.

One said: "Yeah, a trip to NSI would be a one-way trip.

"Pls don't. Last guy who tried died pretty quickly and it pissed off the Indian government because they absolutely forbid anyone from going."

Another said that the island's population should be left free from Miles' 'bants', writing: "I wouldn't go there.

"You'd just see some natives firing arrows at you and probably couldn't close enough to it to be super interesting. Also lowkey they should be left alone."

One joked: "Please go there. This bit is tiresome."
