Officials are trying to determine whether the man known as "Jihadi John" was killed in a U.S. drone strike yesterday. Mohammed Emzawi was identified as the British-accented man seen in numerous Islamic State beheading videos of Western hostages.

Meantime, Kurdish forces raised their flag in Sinjar today, claiming they have retaken the Iraqi town from ISIS, and there have been bombings in Iraq and Lebanon targeting Shiites.
