‘White Widow dies’
British Isis recruiter Sally-Anne Jones, dubbed the White Widow, has reportedly been killed in a US drone strike. Jones was killed close to the border between Syria and Iraq by a US Air Force strike in June, according to the Sun. She and her husband Junaid Hussain went to Syria in 2013 to join Isis. He was killed by a US drone in 2015. News of her death was not made public amid fears that her 12-year-old son Jojo may also have been killed, according to the Sun. Jones, who was previously a member of an all-girl punk rock group, converted to Islam. She used her Twitter account to recruit women and provided practical advice on how to travel to Syria. She encouraged individuals to carry out attacks in Britain, offering guidance on how to construct bombs.
