The widow of a British aid worker killed by Islamic State militants says she would like to see "Jihadi John" captured and put on trial.

Dragana Haines told The Associated Press in a brief phone interview Friday from her home in Croatia, that "I really hope he will be caught, I think it would be a good lesson for all."

Haines, whose husband was killed in September, adds that "people of his kind believe that death in combat is an honor, something special." She said that "I think it would be better if he would end up in court."

The militant known as Jihadi John appears speaking in several videos of beheadings. He has

been identified as Mohammed Emwazi, a London-raised university graduate in his mid-20s.
