Iraq claims IS chief Baghdadi convoy hit in air raid

Iraq claimed Sunday to have struck a convoy carrying Islamic State group leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in an air raid near the Syrian border but said his fate was unknown. In Syria meanwhile regime troops backed by Russian air strikes made progress on two fronts but were battling other rebel groups. Iraqi aircraft struck Baghdadi’s convoy as it was “moving towards Karabla to attend a meeting of the Daesh (IS) terrorist leaders,” an Iraqi security statement said.
