Notorious self-styled Islamic State executioner 'Jihadi John' has reportedly fled the militant group's territory and is now on the run in Syria.

The Daily Mirror says that sources told the newspaper that the London-born terrorist - real name Mohammed Emwazi - has been terrified by the publicity he recieved after being identified as the murderer of British and American hostages and fears he is being hunted by allied special forces.

The newspaper also reports that Emwazi is running because he fears he is no longer valuable to the terror group.

26-year-old Emwazi is wanted for the gruesome killings of journalists and aid workers Stephen Sotloff, James Foley, David Haines, Alan Henning and Peter Kassig last year.

According to some reports, US and UK special forces are in both Iraq and Syria and it is thought the British radical could be high on a potential 'kill or capture' list.

It is thought Emwazi may try and flee to North Africa and join up with other radical militants there.
