Islamic State Vows To Revenge Al-Baghdadi's Death

Islamic State confirmed on Thursday that its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead.

U.S. forces in northwestern Syria killed al-Baghdadi in a weekend raid.

In response, Islamic State vowed revenge against the United States.

Baghdadi was an Iraqi jihadist who rose from obscurity to become the head of the ultra-hardline group.

According to Reuters, he declared himself “caliph” of all Muslims. Al-Baghdadi and two young children died during the swoop by U.S. special forces.
