A statement attributed to the Islamic State group claimed an American female hostage was killed in a Jordanian airstrike on Friday on the outskirts of the northern Syrian city of Raqqa, the extremist group's main stronghold.The statement identified the woman as Kayla Jean Mueller and said she was killed during Muslim prayers -- which usually take place around midday on Fridays -- in airstrikes that targeted "the same location for more than an hour". No Islamic State militants were killed in the airstrikes, the statement further claimed. According to the local paper, Mueller had been working with the humanitarian aid agency Support to Life, as well as a local NGO that helped female Syrian refugees develop skills.
