A close friend of Azmir's family, who did not want to be named, was quoted as telling PA: "They have taken it very badly - this is the second son who has been killed in a drone strike."
Father-of-three Azmir was born in Sheffield and lived in Ilford, Essex.
The 37-year-old was made subject to a Treasury order freezing his assets in February 2010 in response to concerns he was involved in funding terrorism.
absconding from a control order in May 2007.
The 24-year-old was made subject to a control order after being stopped en route to Syria from where, the British authorities claimed, he was planning to travel to Iraq or
Afghanistan for militant training or to fight Western forces.
