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.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.”CIA officials told their UK counterparts that a US Air Force Predator killed 50-year-old Jones in June, the newspaper reports. It is not known if her son was with her.
