Jeremy Corbyn: UK jihadist Sally-Anne Jones should have faced trial

A British member of the Islamic State terrorist network, dubbed as the "White Widow" by United Kingdom media, has been killed along with her minor son in a U.S. drone strike in Syria, media reports said on Thursday.

A British jihadist reportedly killed by a U.S. drone strike in Syria should have faced trial, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said. There have been several such claims of IS militants having been killed only for them to resurface months later.

Jones, reportedly an active online recruiter and propagandist for ISIS, was dubbed the "white widow" by the British press after her jihadi husband was killed in 2015.

The newspaper said the blast was kept secret by the Central Intelligence Agency over concerns Jones' twelve year old son, Jojo, may have also been killed in the incident. "Quite frankly, it's good riddance", the unnamed official said.

The Home Office source is quoted as saying, "The Americans zapped her trying to get away from Raqqa". "I do not have any information that would substantiate that report but that could change and we are looking into this" Major Adrian Rankine-Galloway, a Pentagon spokesman, told the Guardian.

The 50-year-old used her Twitter account to recruit women and shared pictures of herself with weapons.

The nickname "white widow" is also attributed to Samantha Lewthwaite- the widow of the 2005 London attacker Germaine Lindsay- who has since been linked to a number of terror plots in Africa.

"In one propaganda post, she posed as a nun with a gun and spoke of her wish to behead Christians with a "nice blunt knife", The Sun reports.

Reports suggest she was killed by a US Air Force Predator strike as she was attempting to flee Raqqa in Syria heading to Syria stronghold Mayadin.

"The premise that Sally Jones and her son are dead is probably accurate".
