ISIL chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi killed in Syria

US President Donald Trump has confirmed the death of ISIL leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in a military operation in Syria’s northwest Idlib province. Trump said the leader of the ISIS died after running into a dead-end tunnel in the village of Barisha and ignited an explosive vest during the raid, killing himself along with three of his children. Baghdadi’s successor has already taken the symbolic reins over the now-defunct “caliphate.” The new terrorist-in-chief is Abdullah Qardash, a former Iraqi military officer who served under Saddam Hussein.
Meanwhile, Donald Trump was greeted with boos and a smattering of chants of “Lock him up!” when he appeared on screen at the World Series in Washington. Trump appeared on a display screen at the Washington Nationals Park stadium between innings of the Game 5 match-up between the Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros.
