Biden says IS leader killed during US raid in Syria


President Joe Biden gives a statement on the assassination of the leader of the so-called Islamic State group in an overnight raid in Syria’s north-western Idlib province. The raid targeted Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi, who took over as head of the militant group on October 31 2019, just days after leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi died during a US raid in the same area.
