Jihadist who declared war on Christians 'killed'

The Muslim convert fled Britain to join ISIS back in 2013 alongside toyboy lover Junaid Hussain, taking her then-nine-year-old son JoJo with her

Both Rankine-Galloway and Corbyn were responding to a report Thursday by The Sun that cited Central Intelligence Agency officials in reporting Jones' death - by a drone strike in June near the Syria-Iraq border.

Britain's The Sun newspaper cites USA intelligence sources as saying Jones was killed in June.

Officials said conditions on the ground prevent them from knowing for certain if Jones is dead, but her social media activity has been silent for months.

British IS recruiter Sally-Anne Jones, dubbed the White Widow, is understood to have been killed in a USA drone strike.

Turkey will Boycott Meetings with the US Ambassador
Embassy in Ankara announced it had suspended non-immigrant visa services at all diplomatic facilities in Turkey . Metin Topuz is accused of espionage and "attempting to overthrow the Turkish government and constitution".

The Pentagon said it's looking into reports that a British Islamic State supporter known as the "White Widow" was killed by an airstrike this summer.

She became radicalized after travelling to Syria following an online romance with convicted computer hacker and IS member Junaid Hussain, who died in a 2015 drone strike.

A Whitehall source told The Sun: "The Americans zapped her trying to get away from Raqqa". She travelled to Syria with Joe "Jojo" Dixon, her youngest son from a previous relationship, later that year.

"In one propaganda post, she posed as a nun with a gun and spoke of her wish to behead Christians with a "nice blunt knife", The Sun reports.

Jerry Jones: Cowboys players 'disrespecting the flag' won't be allowed to play
Sachs, Kestnbaum Professor of Labor and Industry, Harvard University: "I think being benched is adverse employment action". This comes after Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he would bench anyone who shows disrespect to the American flag.

Mr Corbyn, said it was hard to answer a question about whether he would have ordered a drone strike to kill Jones if British troops had been at risk, as it was hypothetical.

Major Gen Chip Chapman, the former head of counter-terrorism at the Ministry of Defence, told the Press Association that she would have been a "significant" target due to her marriage to Hussain and role as a recruiter.

Prime Minister Theresa May said she was "aware of the reports" around Jones's death but was "not in a position to comment further". "She is the first woman I know of who's been specifically targeted in this way".

"Even if he got up to really bad things, he shouldn't have been targeted", he said.
