British Islamic State recruiter Sally Jones, the so-called "White Widow", has reportedly been killed by a drone strike in Syria.

Terry was adamant that it was absolutely right to kill her, regardless of what happened to her son.

British jihadist Sally Jones has been killed in a United States drone strike in Syria, Sky sources say.

"They could pluck up this woman who was a punk rocker, who was white, who was kind of attractive and they could put her up as their kind of poster woman". She travelled to Syria with Joe "Jojo" Dixon, her youngest son from a previous relationship, later that year. A second son, aged 20, is believed to have remained in the UK.

In an exclusive report in 2015, Sky News revealed the couple used online messaging services to urge British would-be recruits to carry out "lone wolf" attacks in the UK.

An 'unknown disaster' looms in Catalonia's independence crisis
On October 1, Catalonia held the independence referendum, which is not recognized by the Spanish authorities. Madrid responded to the vote with force, sending thousands of police to the region to shut down the vote.

According to reports, official confirmation would only have been possible if remains had been checked against a DNA database - something not possible without the use of special forces on the ground.

"The UK and USA military has been working closely together on a number of high-profile targets in recent months and Jones is believed to have been on that list".

Jones also posted messages in support of IS as well as extremist comments such as: "You Christians all need beheading with a nice blunt knife and stuck on the railings at Raqqa ..."

Former Ministry of Defence head of counter terror Major General Chip Chapman said Jones' alliance with Hussain and her recruitment role would have made her a "significant" target. "We don't know for sure whether he was with her or not".

According to the report, USA intelligence officials said they could not be absolutely certain Jones was killed in the drone strike, because there was no effort to recover her DNA, but were "confident" that she is dead.
