A British jihadi who hacked computers for the so-called Islamic State has reportedly been killed in a drone strike in Syria.
Junaid Hussain is said to have been number three on a Pentagon "kill list" - behind only Jihadi John and IS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, according to ITV website on Thursday.
US officials are still seeking final confirmation but say they have a "high level of confidence" Hussain, from Birmingham, was killed.
The claims have not yet been confirmed by British authorities.
Hussain, 21, is thought to have fled to Syria in 2013 with his 45-year-old wife Sally Jones from Kent.
The couple were dubbed "Mr and Mrs Terror" and it is believed Jones now leads an all-female IS brigade.
In June this year Hussain was linked to an IS plot to attack an Armed Forces Day parade in south London.
But the plan failed after the plotters unwittingly recruited an undercover reporter from The Sun to carry it out.
Hussain was jailed for six months in 2012 aged just 18 after admitting making nuisance calls and publishing Tony Blair's address book.
