‘Jihadi John’: US air strike targets Islamic State militant in Syria – BBC News

US forces have carried out a drone strike in Syria against the Islamic State group militant “Jihadi John”.

A US military source said there was a “high degree of certainty” he had been killed in Thursday’s attack in Raqqa.

PM David Cameron said although it was not yet certain whether the strike had been successful, targeting Mohammed Emwazi was “the right thing to do”.
