Iraqi air force ‘kills 77’ in strikes aimed at IS leader Baghdadi | BBC News

The Iraqi air force has killed 13 commanders of so-called Islamic State in a strike on a building in Qaim where leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was thought to be, a statement said.

Baghdadi’s name was not on a list of the dead published by the military.

At least 64 lower-ranked IS fighters were killed in a wave of strikes in western Iraq, the statement added.

The military said Baghdadi moved last week in a convoy from Raqqa, in Syria, to the region of Qaim, over the border.
