The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

BAGH­DAD: Is­lamic State (IS) leader Abu Bakr al-Bagh­dadi called on his fight­ers to re­sist as Iraqi forces were poised yes­ter­day to en­ter the city of Mo­sul where he de­clared a “caliphate” two years ago. The ap­peal was made in an au­dio record­ing re­leased on the in­ter­net and pur­ported to be by the elu­sive IS leader, his first mes­sage this year. “Do not re­treat,” he said. “Hold­ing your ground with hon­our is a thou­sand times eas­ier than re­treat­ing in shame.” – AFP
