The world’s most wanted man, Jihadi John, is believed to have been killed in a US drone strike in Syria.
Pentagon officials say they are ’99 per cent’ sure they have assassinated British Islamic State executioner Mohammed Emwazi in the terror group’s capital of Raqqa.
The 27-year-old from London, who became the face of ISIS in their sickening beheading videos of Western hostages including two British aid workers, was ‘evaporated’ by a missile as he climbed into a vehicle.
A senior US defence official told Fox News: ‘We are 99 per cent sure we got him. We were on him for some time.’
The Kuwaiti-born militant, who moved to the UK when he was six years old, was blown up in a ‘flawless’ and ‘clean hit’, another defence source told ABC News.
However, there is a good chance his death will never be confirmed if his body has been incinerated and spies may have to rely on intercepting chatter from the jihadi militants to verify the reports.
