US releases photos, videos of Baghdadi operation

Oct 31, 2019 08:37 IST

The general who oversaw the US raid on Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on Wednesday provided the most detailed account yet of the operation. Gen. Frank McKenzie, head of US Central Command, released the first government photos and video clips of the nighttime operation, including one showing Delta Force commandos approaching the walls of the compound in which al-Baghdadi and others were found. McKenzie also added that two children under the age of 12 died with al-Baghdadi when he detonated a bomb vest, this is fewer than originally reported. The US has said that al-Baghdadi's remains were buried at sea within 24 hours of his death. They also bombed the compound after the soldiers completed the mission so that it would not stand as a shrine to al-Baghdadi.
