The TelegraphBritain's most wanted female terrorist Sally Jones, nicknamed the White Widow, has reportedly been killed in a drone strike. The fugitive jihadi, who was once a punk rock singer, was said to have been killed in June in a US strike close to the border between Syria and Iraq. For more than three years, Jones has been the world’s most wanted female terrorist and is now said to have become one of the list of infamous Britons to die after joining Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil). She fled to Syria from Kent in 2013 to marry computer hacker Junaid Hussain, an Isil fighter from Birmingham, and took her then 11-year-old son, Joe “JoJo” Dixon, with her. A Whitehall source told The Sun: “The Americans zapped her trying to get away from Raqqa. Quite frankly, it’s good riddance.” Isil "entry file" of Junaid Hussain shows he crossed into Syria in July 2013 Credit: None CIA officials told their UK counterparts that a US Air Force Predator killed 50-year-old Jones in June, the newspaper reports. The delay in her apparent death emerging is said to have been over fears her son might have also been killed in the strike. It is not known if her son was with her.

Jones had been a single mother of two living on benefits when she met her future husband, then 19, online and became besotted with him.

Her partner was killed in a drone strike on his car in August 2015, she then became know as the White Widow. Sally Jones JoJo journey Syria Raqqa Isil She was believed to have been living in Raqqa with her son and was in charge of training all European female recruits, or “muhajirat”.  She was entrusted with leading the secretive female wing of the Anwar al-Awlaki battalion, a unit founded by her late husband that is composed solely of foreign fighters with the purpose of planning and executing attacks in the West.
