Former punk rock singer, Sally Jones, said to be the world’s most wanted female Islamist terrorist, has reportedly been killed in a US drone strike near the Syrian-Iraqi border. Dubbed the “White Widow,” she fled to Syria from Britain in 2013 to marry ISIS fighter Junaid Hussain from Birmingham with her 11-year old son. She was believed to have been living in Raqqa. Under the pseudonym of Umm Hussain al-Britani, Jones was said to have been in charge of training all European female recruits, or “muhajirat.” As head of the secretive female wing of the Anwar al-Awlaki battalion, a unit founded by her late husband, she recruited and prepared foreign jihadists for terrorist attacks in the West.
A British official commented: “The Americans zapped her trying to get away from Raqqa. Quite frankly, it’s good riddance.”
