Military: US 'reasonably certain' Jihadi John is dead
WASHINGTON - U.S. military spokesman Steve Warren says officials are "reasonably certain" they have killed the Islamic State militant known as Jihadi John with a Hellfire missile fired from a drone.
Warren says the world is better off without the man believed to have beheaded several Western hostages, whom the spokesman referred to as a human animal.
Warren says the operation was one in a string of targeted attacks on Islamic State leaders. He says the U.S. has killed one mid- to upper-level ISIL leader every two days since May.
