Rome: The leader of Islamic State’s so-called caliphate, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has been killed in an air raid in Syria.

Baghdadi died in an air strike on IS's stronghold of Raqqa in northern Syria in a US-led air attack, Iranian state media said. The Iranian media quoted a report from IS-affiliated Arabic news agency al-Amaq.

"Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed by coalition airstrikes on Raqqa on the fifth day of Ramadan," said the statement.

But the US-led coalition did not immediately comment on the report.
On Monday, Iraqi TV channel 'Al-Sumaria' had said that Baghadi had been wounded on Sunday in a coalition air strike on a location 65 kilometres west of Mosul, which is held by ISIS terrorists.

Western media reports have suggested that Baghdadi has been ‘moved around’ over the past several months, and had travelled to Mosul. There is a $25 million bounty on his head.
