good morning from the studio 57 newsroom at cbs news headquarters here in new york. good to be with you. i'm anne-marie green. this morning, the pentbgon is trying to determine if a u.s. air strike killed the infamous executioner known as jihadi john. thursday's air strike was carried out bay drone that targeted a vehicle in the syrian city of raqqa, an islamic state stronghold. johnathan vigliotti is in london with the details on this this morning. >> reporter: jihadi john was the international symbol of the brutality that is isis. he first appeared on an islamic state video last year wearing a mask, dressed in black, and holding a large knife. he spoke with a british accent. before executing american journalist james foley. the beheading video provoked outrage. it was the first of several brutal executions. jihadi john was identified as a british citizen, mohammed emwazi, last february. a former hostage described him
