STEPANAKERT, JUNE 14, ARTSAKHPRESS: Various news agencies are reporting of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s death.

There have previously been reports that al-Baghdadi was killed or wounded after proclaiming himself caliph of all Muslims two years ago. 

The Abna24 website said al-Baghdadi had been killed on Sunday morning by an air strike in Syria but the US-led coalition has made no comment.

The news comes after an Iraqi TV channel claimed last week that al-Baghdadi, who is believed to be in besieged ISIS 'capital' Raqqa, was hurt by a bomb released from a US-led coalition aircraft, the Mirror reported.
