ISIS says American hostage Kayla Mueller is dead, and the group is blaming her death on recent attacks from Jordan.
SITE Intel Group — an organization that tracks online terrorist activity — tweeted late Friday morning ISIS claimed Jordan's recent airstrikes in Raqqa hit a building where the militants were keeping Mueller.
Mueller traveled to the region multiple times in recent years to help Syrian refugees fleeing from the country's violent civil war. Mueller had been in captivity since August 2013. (Video YouTube / SyrianSitin)
