DUBAI - A media outlet associated with Islamic State on Tuesday released a eulogy for "Jihadi John", a member of the militant group who won global notoriety for his filmed executions of hostages, the monitoring organisation SITE reported.

The militant, who was identified as Mohammed Emwazi, a British citizen of Arab origin, was described in Islamic State's Dabiq magazine by his nickname in the group of "Abu Muharib al-Muhajir."

The US military said in November it was "reasonably certain" it had killed him in a drone strike.
