IS-leider al-Baghdadi duikt op

Graphic News

April 30, 2019 -- De eerste video-verschijning in vijf jaar van Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, de
leider van Islamitische Staat en de meest gezochte man ter wereld, maakt een eind aan speculaties dat hij enkele jaren geleden zou zijn gedood.

In the video, Baghdadi claimed the Easter Day bombings in Sri Lanka which killed over 250 people were “part of the revenge” that awaits the West.

With a $25 million U.S. bounty on his head, al-Baghdadi is the world’s most wanted man.

The US-led anti-Isis coalition has warned that while IS is weakened it still poses a potent threat, and pockets of its fighters are able to carry out terrorist attacks in Iraq and Syria. There are IS cells in Libya and the UN has said they are also present in Iran.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
