Baghdad: Iraq's air force on Sunday said it struck a convoy carrying Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State group.

A statement Sunday said "the Iraqi air force carried out a heroic operation targeting the convoy of the criminal terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi" as he made his way to a meeting in the town of Karablah, in Iraq's western Anbar province. The statement says al-Baghdadi's fate and whereabouts are not known.

Officials from the U.S.-led coalition bombing the IS group in Iraq and Syria could not immediately be reached for comment.
