Reports from Syria suggest the leader of ISIS Abu Bkr al-Baghdadi was killed in an air strike on Saturday.

Mirror -- The leader of ISIS has been killed in an air strike in Syria, according to unverified reports in Syrian state media.

Claims suggest the leader of ISIS Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in an air strike on Saturday.

Heavy artillery was dropped across the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa throughout the day, with footage online posted by ISIS news agency Amaq revealing the devastation caused.

The ISIS leader has a £20million bounty on his head because his hate-filled sermons inspired suicide attacks across Europe. There have been previous reports of al-Baghdadi's death, which turned out to be untrue.
