IS founder Baghdadi’s successor also killed, says Trump

Agency News

Washington, Oct 29: US President Donald Trump on Tuesday claimed that another prominent ISIS leader has been killed by the US military.

"Just confirmed that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s number one replacement has been terminated by American troops," Trump tweeted. "Most likely would have taken the top spot - Now he is also dead!"

Mr Trump, however, did not give the name of the ISIS leader who was reportedly killed.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Islamic State chief, was killed in a US special forces raid in Turkey near the Syrian border on Saturday. (UNI)
