Report: Senior ISIS leaders killed after Iraqi airstrike hits convoy

A number of senior leaders in Isis have been killed in an air strike after the Iraq’s Air Force claimed to have hit a military convoy carrying the jihadi leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in Iraq.

A military statement had earlier claimed the strike had taken place in the Iraqi province of Anbar but admitted it was unclear if al-Baghdadi had been killed.  

Local residents and several hospital sources told Reuters that the ISIS leader was not among the casualties from the convoy air strike.
