Islamic State confirms Baghdadi's death, names new leader

Oct 31, 2019 23:12 IST

The Islamic State jihadist group confirmed the death of its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and named his replacement as Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Quraishi in an audio statement. Baghdadi, who led IS since 2014 and was the world's most wanted man, was killed in a US special forces raid in Syria's northwestern province of Idlib on Sunday. The IS spokesman also issued a stark warning to the United States, calling Trump "a crazy old man" saying Baghdadi's supporters would avenge his death.
