The husband of Chatham mum and Islamic State recruit Sally Jones is believed to have been killed in a US air strike in Syria.
The US military is thought to be close to confirming the death of Birmingham-born computer hacker Junaid Hussain, 21 - the most prominent British member of Islamic State after the man known as "Jihadi John".
Official sources have been quoted as saying they are confident Hussain was killed by a drone strike while travelling in a vehicle in Syria on Wednesday.
Chatham's Sally Jones married Hussain after joining Islamic State in 2013, and moved to Syria herself with one of her sons.
A former guitarist with an all-girl rock band, Jones had moved from Chatham to Borough Green, where it is thought she was receiving grocery parcels from a church-organised food bank just weeks before moving to Syria.
A Union Flag was torn down, burnt and urinated on in Borough Green earlier this year - and one of the culprits was revealed to be Jones' 18-year-old son, Jonathan Wilkinson.
Jones - who has previously shared her desire to behead Christians with a "blunt knife" - has since been reported to have been spotted back in the UK, in Birmingham.
Reports described Hussain as a key operative for Islamic State, allegedly involved in recruitment and online hacking. He was said to be No 3 on the Pentagon’s “kill list” of Isis targets, and was linked to a failed plot to attack a London Armed-Forces Day parade in June.
