Drone kills ‘White Widow’
British Islamic State recruiter SallyAnne 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 the US Air Force strike in June, according to British tabloid 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 newspaper. Jones, who was previously a member of an all-girl punk rock group, left her home in Kent after converting to Islam. She used her Twitter account to recruit women and provide advice on how to travel to Syria and construct homemade bombs.
