Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi: US releases first images of raid on compound | BBC

Footage has been released showing troops attacking the complex where Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was hiding, and later the explosion destroying the compound. Video shows troops firing at militants as they run towards the compound. An undetermined number of fighters were killed, along with four women wearing suicide vests. Baghdadi absconded into a tunnel along with two of his children where he detonated a suicide vest, killing all three of them. The facility was later destroyed with armaments, leaving the buildings looking like “a parking lot with large potholes”.
