Sally Jones, known for a her prolific pro-ISIS propaganda on social media and often described as the world's most wanted terrorist, is believed to have been killed along with her 12-year-old son Jojo.

"The premise that Sally Jones and her son are dead is probably accurate," said a UK government source. Jones' husband, 21-year-old Junaid Hussain who was a computer hacker from Birmingham and also an ISIS member, was killed in a drone strike in Raqqa, in 2015.
