ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi 'killed in US-led air strikes in Syria'
The Islamic State leader was reported to be injured in Raqqa, Syria, last week but officials could not confirm if he was fatally wounded
Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed following US-led air strikes in Syria, according to reports.
A statement from a news agency linked to the terrorist organisation said: "Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed by coalition air strikes on Raqqa on the fifth day of Ramadan."
Another source claimed he died in Mosul, Iraq - another ISIS-held stronghold.
In a statement from Iraqi security forces, officers said: "Iraqi aircraft hit Baghdadi's convoy as it was moving towards Karabla to attend a meeting of the Daesh [ISIS]terrorist leaders."
The news comes after an Iraqi TV channel claimed last week that al-Baghdadi, who is believed to be in besieged ISIS 'capital' Raqqa, was hurt by a bomb released from a US-led coalition aircraft.
