The Home Office source is quoted as saying, "The Americans zapped her trying to get away from Raqqa".

The Pentagon said it's looking into reports that a British Islamic State supporter known as the "White Widow" was killed by an airstrike this summer. A British government source told the newspaper.

Following her husband's death, Jones was reportedly placed in charge of the female wing of IS' Anwar al-Awlaki batallion - a foreign fighter unit formed with the objective of planning and executing attacks in the West. Many ISIS militants have reappeared after their reported deaths.

A mother of two from Chatham, Kent, Jones had moved to Syria in 2013 after converting to Islam. "My older son had a girlfriend and didn't want to come", she told the newspaper.
