The mother of American journalist James Foley, who was beheaded last year in Syria, said on Friday she felt no solace in the likely killing of Islamic State militant known as "Jihadi John."

The United States on Thursday carried out an air strike in Syria targeting killed Mohammed Emwazi, the British citizen who participated in gruesome videos showing the killings of American and British hostages, officials said.

One US official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Emwazi was likely dead, but cautioned that it was too soon to make any determination.
