According to ABC News, Iraqi security forces claim to have struck the convoy of Islamic State (IS) group leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in an air strike near the country's border with Syria.
The military said in a statement that the air force bombed the convoy as Baghdadi travelled to a meeting with IS "commanders" in Karabla, barely five kilometres from the border with Syria.
"The location of the meeting was also bombed and many of the group's leaders were killed and wounded," the statement said.
"Fate of murderer al-Baghdadi is unknown and he was carried away by a vehicle.
"His health condition is still unclear."
