COLOMBO(News 1st) – Reports are circulating about the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Newsweek is reporting the 48-year-old leader of the Islamic State has been killed in a targeted attack approved by US President Donald Trump a week ago.

The report suggests Baghdadi was killed sometime Saturday.

Confirmation of the report and details of the reported killing have yet to come from the White House.

Since 2016, the US has had a $25 million bounty on Baghdadi’s head.

President Donald Trump is teasing a major announcement, tweeting Saturday night that “Something very big has just happened!”

A White House spokesman, Hogan Gidley, would say only that the president would be making a “major statement” at 9 a.m. EDT Sunday.
