Jihadi Sally Jones slapped with UN sanctions on IS fighters

Kent's Sally Jones - known as Jihadi Sally - is one of four Britons hit with international sanctions in a bid by the Government to stem the flow of home-grown Islamic State recruits.

They are all suspected of leading recruitment drives and plotting terror attacks against the UK and elsewhere from strongholds in Syria.

The sanctions include having their assets frozen and being put on a "no-fly" list.

The 46-year-old moved to Syria two years ago with her husband Junaid Hussain, who was killed in a US drone strike last month

She uses Twitter accounts - which have previously been suspended - to recruit women to IS, and has provided practical advice on how to travel to Syria.

Tweets posted from the most recent account attributed to her reacted to news of the sanctions.

"Just found out from a article that David Cameron has put me on a UN Sanctions list as i lol @ England for giving me a travel ban :)" said one, before another which read: "England i came here to fight you fisabilillah & i will until my last breath #IS"

All four of the Britons have had their names added to a United Nations list.
