al-Baghdad, líder do Estado Islâmico reaparece

April 30, 2019 - A primeira aparição em vídeo em cinco anos de Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi,
o líder do Estado Islâmico e o homem mais procurado do mundo, acabou com a especulação de que tinha sido morto há anos.

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.
