Abu Bakr al Baghdadi's successor was reportedly named a few hours after his death and he is apparently a founding Daesh member whose rulings led to the infamous enslavement of Yazidis.
French Defence Minister Florence Parly said an investigation has been opened to determine the exact circumstances of the accident.
Kirsehir's prosecutor’s office said that 25 of dead Daesh leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi's close relatives had been remanded in an anti-terror operation.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the capture of the Daesh terrorist leader's wife while speaking to a group of students in Ankara.
Abu Bakr al Baghdadi's 65-year-old sister, known as Rasmiya Awad, was captured in a raid on Monday evening on a trailer container she was living in with her family near the town of Azaz in Aleppo province.
Another turning point in the hunt for Baghdadi came earlier this year during a joint operation in which US, Turkish and Iraqi intelligence agents captured senior Daesh leaders, including four Iraqis and one Syrian, an Iraqi security official says.
Killing the leader of the most brutal terror organisation is a symbolic blow but the breeding grounds for the group's ideology thrive.
While the global allure of Daesh has diminished, it is still a threat to Iraqis and Syrians.
Message was Baghdadi's first purported audio communication in almost a year during which Daesh lost much of its so-called caliphate.
Counter-Daesh coalition commander in Iraq and Syria says he doesn't know Baghdad's location but he's probably in the Euphrates valley.
It's not likely that the defeat of Daesh in Mosul is going to mean the end of the group itself. So long as the political conditions for radicalism and sympathy for Daesh's ideology exists, territorial defeats can not eradicate the group.
A long list of disastrous policies pursued by the US, its allies, and the government in Iraq created the conditions for Daesh to take advantage of the collapse of al Qaeda and the political marginalisation of Sunni Arabs.
