Isis Names New Leader, Vows Revenge Against U.S. For Baghdadi Killing

The Islamic State militant group confirmed on Thursday its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed, the group's news agency Amaq said in an audio tape following a U.S. weekend raid.


The extremist group also confirmed its spokesman Abu al-Hassan al-Muhajir was also dead.  


Al-Muhajir, who The New York Times reported would be Baghdadi's most likely successor, was first reported killed on Sunday. 


The group had been silent until now and as successor it appointed someone Amaq only identified as Abu Ibrahim al-Hashemi al-Quraishi.


An ISIS spokesman addressed the United States in the tape.

“Beware vengeance (against) their nation and their brethren of infidels and apostates, and carrying out the will of the commander of the faithful in his last audio message, and getting closer to God with the blood of polytheists,” he said.
