Isis leader Baghdadi's son killed in Syria, terror group claims

As featured in The Independent



The death of his son potentially deprives him of an heir, according to Raffaello Pantucci, director of International Security Studies at the Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies (RUSI). He said the death could serve to inspire the group further, "and highlight how the many young cubs of the caliphate are useable as terrorist tools, something which people may have worried about. But such a clear leadership signal on this topic will bolster people's use of them as potential attackers".
