US military 'reasonably certain Jihadi John' killed in attack'

The US military has said it is 'reasonably certain' Mohammed Emwazi, the IS militant known as 'Jihadi John', was killed in a US-led drone attack.

A suspected British associate of Emwazi has also reportedly been detained. According to Reuters, two senior Turkish officials confirmed the suspected associate, thought to be Aine Lesley Davis, was being held by authorities in Turkey.

Emwazi was wanted for a string of brutal murders of hostages - including Britons David Haines and Alan Henning - many of which were broadcast in propaganda videos by the radical group.

The daughter of beheaded British aid worker David Haines has said she felt an "instant sense of relief" when she heard "Jihadi John" may have been killed.

Mohammed Emwazi, known as "Jihadi John", appeared in the video of the beheading of Mr Haines in September 2014.

Bethany Haines told ITV News that as much as she wanted him dead, she still wanted answers to why her father was killed.

After seeing the news that 'Jihadi John' was killed I felt an instant sense of relief, knowing he wouldn't appear in anymore horrific videos.

He was only a pawn in Isis's stupid game but knowing it's over that he's finally dead still hasn't sunk in.

As much as I wanted him dead I also wanted answers as to why he did it, why my dad, how did it make a difference?
