    (November 17, 1968-June 2017)
    Born in London, United Kingdom
    Recruiter and trainer for the Islamic State (IS)
    Placed on a United Nations sanctions list that included a travel ban and assets freeze
    Nicknamed ‘the white widow’ after her husband, Junaid Hussein, was killed in a drone strike (August, 2015)
    Also used the pseudonym Umm Hussain al-Britani
    Reported to have been killed by a drone strike during an assault on the IS stronghold of Raqqa in Syria
    She reportedly recruited hundreds of extremists from Great Britain.
    She was responsible for training female European IS recruits in terrorist tactics, including suicide bombings.
    She had to share the ‘white widow’ nickname with Samantha Lewthwaite, a member of a Somali-based militant group and the widow of London 7/7 bomber Germaine Lindsay.
    She called on Muslim women to launch terrorist attacks in London, Glasgow, and Wales during Ramadan (2016).
    One of her typical comments: ‘You Christians all need beheading with a nice blunt knife and stuck on a railing at Raqqa. Come here, I’ll do it for you.’
    Rather confusingly, US intelligence sources said they were not 100% sure she had been killed by the drone strike, but were ‘confident’ she was dead.
    She had been a singer and guitarist in an all-female punk band called Krunch.
    She was reportedly radicalized by her husband.
    She was the first woman targeted by a drone strike, breaking a glass ceiling for female terrorists.
    The drone strike reportedly also killed her 12-year-old son JoJo.
