ihadi John is ‘evaporated’ by a US drone strike: Britain’s ISIS executioner – the world’s most wanted man – is taken out by a ‘flawless clean hit’ while climbing into a vehicle in Raqqa
Officials in the US are scrambling to determine whether he has been killed following the drone attacks in Raqqa, Islamic State’s capital (bottom right). The British Isis militant, whose real name is Mohammed Emwazi, was reportedly ‘eviscerated’ when leaving a building and entering a vehicle. Pentagon Press secretary Peter Cook said: ‘US forces conducted an airstrike in Raqqa, Syria, on November 12, 2015 targeting Mohamed Emwazi, also known as “Jihadi John”.
‘We are assessing the results of tonight’s operation and will provide additional information as and where appropriate.’ Emwazi, 27, (left and centre) carried out a number of beheadings of Western hostages in Syria and was top of the UK Govenrment’s ‘kill list’ of up to a dozen British radicals whom ministers want taken out with targeted drone strikes.
