Prime Minister David Cameron vowed to defeat Jihadists and defended Britain’s secret services on Friday after media reports named Islamic State executioner “Jihadi John” as London graduate Mohammed Emwazi.

“We will do everything we can with the police, the security services, with all that we have at our disposal, to find these people and put them out of action,” Cameron said at a press conference in Wales.

“Jihadi John”, believed to be responsible for beheading at least five Western hostages, was identified Thursday by media and experts as a Kuwaiti-born computing graduate who had lived in London since the age of six.

As families of the slain hostages were calling for justice, Britain’s domestic spy agency MI5 came under scrutiny following revelations Emwazi had been known to security services for several years.

Campaign group Cage said MI5 had been tracking Emwazi, aged in his mid-20s, since at least 2009.
