ISIS Leader Dead?


The diabolical leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, may be dead, the AP reported on Friday.

The Russian Defense Ministry issued a statement saying that a Russian air strike likely killed the arch terrorist as he met with other ISIS leaders in Syria.

Alexei Pushkov, a Russian official, is quoted by AP as saying, "If confirmed, al-Baghdadi’s death will be a powerful blow to the IS. It has been retreating on all fronts, and the death of its leader will accelerate its demise."

The U.S. said that it cannot confirm the Russian claim.
