Drone Strike Kills Two British IS Fighters

Two Islamic State fighters from Britain are killed in an RAF drone strike in Syria.




Sky News -Two Islamic State fighters from Britain have been killed by an RAF drone strike in "an act of self-defence", David Cameron has confirmed.

Reyaad Khan, from Cardiff, and Ruhul Amin, from Aberdeen, were killed in the aerial raid which was ordered without Commons approval.

Critics reacted immediately, describing the "secret strike" as "unprecedented" and "deeply worrying".

A third Briton, Junaid Hussain, was killed in a US airstrike six days later, on 24 August, the Prime Minister said.
