Britain kills IS fighters in Syria for first time

A Royal Air Force (RAF) drone killed a British jihadist in Syria last month who was planning attacks on Britain, Prime Minister David Cameron said on Monday. The killing of 21-year-old Reyaad Khan, who left home to join Islamic State (IS) group militants in 2013, is a first because it happened in a country where Britain is not at war and has provoked fierce criticism from human rights campaigners. Cameron said the strike was “an act of self-defence” since Khan had been planning “barbaric” attacks in Britain against high-profile commemorations over the summer.
