Family believe jihadi bride has been killed.

ONE of three "jihadi schoolgirls" who fled Britain to join Islamic State in Syria has been killed in an airstrike, it was claimed last night.

Kadiza Sultana, 17, from east London, is believed to have died when her home was obliterated by a Russian bomb. Sultana was said to have been blown up in an attack on the network's "terror HQ" of Raqqa earlier this year.

Her sister Halima said last night: "We were expecting this in a way. But at least we know she is in a better place. She is gone."
