IS posts tape of leader Bagh­dadi

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

The Is­lamic State group on Thurs­day re­leased a new au­dio record­ing pur­port­edly of its leader Abu Bakr al-Bagh­dadi, who vowed to con­tinue fight­ing and called on his fol­low­ers to stand firm de­spite the loss of Mo­sul. The 46-minute­long au­dio, the date of which is not clear, called on Sunni Mus­lims to rise and fight against the Shi­ites, cru­saders and apos­tates. The re­lease of the au­dio, if con­firmed, would be a clear response to ear­lier re­ports that said al-Bagh­dadi was killed.
