US air strike targets British militant 'Jihadi John'

The ISIS terrorist known as "Jihadi John" is believed to be dead. US Forces say they targeted the British citizen during an air-strike.

The man who was born Mohammed Emwazi became infamous in ISIS videos showing him apparently beheading two US journalists, a US aid worker, and a number of other hostages in the mideast.

President Obama had previously warned ISIS terrorists that American justice has a long arm and a long memory. "Those who make the mistake of harming Americans will learn that we will not forget and that our reach is long, and that justice will be served."

Thursday, the pentagon says it is working to confirm that "Jihadi John" was killed by the US missile.
