Jihadi John Unmasked
Islamic State leader "Jihadi John", a Briton named Mohammed Emwazi, was likely killed in an air strike in Syria.

U.S. media and government sources have said the black-clad militant who apparently decapitated hostages including Americans, Britons and Syrians in the videos had been named as Mohammed Emwazi, a Kuwait-born Londoner.

But Salem al-Hashash, a lawyer who represents Jassim Emwazi, denied his client’s son was the same person who appeared in the Islamic State videos and was dubbed "Jihadi John" by western analysts because of his fluent English.
