The Islamic State group claimed on Friday that a female American hostage had been killed in an air strike in Syria by the US-led coalition.

In a statement posted on jihadist websites, IS said the woman was buried beneath the rubble after a raid by a Jordanian warplane in Raqa, the self-proclaimed capital of the militant group.
