After multiple reports said that the top Islamic State (IS) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was reportedly killed in an operation carried out by the US special forces in Syria’s Idlib province on Saturday, Iraq said that it had been informed of the death of the IS leader.
“Our sources from inside Syria have confirmed to the Iraqi intelligence team, tasked with pursuing Baghdadi, that he has been killed alongside his personal bodyguard in Idlib after his hiding place was discovered when he tried to get his family out of Idlib towards the Turkish border,” said one of the sources, according to Reuters.

A US defense official told CNN that Baghdadi apparently detonated a suicide vest before the US forces could capture him alive, noting that the CIA assisted with locating the top IS leader.
The final confirmation is yet to be announced as DNA and biometric testing is underway. Source
