Jihadi John appeared in several videos showing the murders of western journalists
Washington - Arab Today
The US military said Friday it was "reasonably certain" that it killed the Islamic State militant known as "Jihadi John" in a drone strike in Syria.
"We are reasonably certain that we killed the target that we intended to kill, which is 'Jihadi John,'" Colonel Steven Warren said from Baghdad in a briefing that was webcast live to reporters at the Pentagon.
The masked British militant targeted in Thursday's strike had appeared in a string of grisly videos showing the execution of Western hostages.
