Islamic State is claiming on social media outlets that a female American hostage in its captivity was killed in Jordanian reprisal air strikes in Raqqa, Syria, CNN is reporting.

There was no further proof provided as to the claim.

Kayla Mueller, 26, an international aid worker who was based in Syria, was taken captive by ISIS terrorists in August 2013.

The ISIS claim was first reported by SITE, an intelligence web site that monitors extremist activity on the Internet.
