Prime Minister David Cameron defended Britain's secret services and vowed to defeat jihadis Friday after media reports named ISIS executioner "Jihadi John" as Londoner Mohammed Emwazi.As families of the slain hostages called for justice, Britain's domestic spy agency MI5 came under scrutiny following revelations Emwazi had been known to security services for several years.Civil rights group Cage said MI5 had been tracking Emwazi, aged in his mid-20s, since at least 2009 .London Mayor Boris Johnson meanwhile accused Cage of "an apology for terror" for blaming Emwazi's radicalization on his alleged detention and "harassment" by the British security services."Jihadi John," nicknamed after Beatle John Lennon due to his British accent, is believed to be responsible for the murders of U.S. journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, British aid workers David Haines and Alan Henning, and American aid worker Abdul-Rahman Kassig.
