British jihadist Sally Jones has been killed by a US drone strike, according to reports.
The one-time punk rocker from Chatham went to Syria in 2013.
But now, according to The Sun, she has been killed close to the Iraq-Syria border by an American aircraft.

Her 12-year-old son JoJo Dixon is also thought to have been killed.
Considered Britain's most-wanted woman, Jones, known as the White Widow, was a recruiter for Islamic State.
The Sun quotes a Whitehall source as saying: ”The Americans zapped her trying to get away from Raqqa. Quite frankly, it's good riddance.”
The report says Jones was killed by a drone close to the border between Syria and Iraq in June.
Jones, 50, who had gone under the name Umm Hussain al-Britani, issued threats against the UK last year, urging Muslim women to launch terrorist attacks during Ramadam.
Earlier this year, it was reported that Jones wanted to return to Britain two years after the death of her husband in an American drone strike.
Jones, a former punk band guitarist, joined Islamic State in 2013 after marrying partner Junaid Hussain.
