ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in a targeted airstrike near Raqqa last month, according to the Russian military.

Russia's Defence Ministry said the world's most wanted terrorist was killed in a Russian air strike on May 28 along with other senior group commanders. 
It said the air raid that targeted an ISIS meeting on the southern outskirts of Raqqa also killed about 30 mid-level militant leaders and about 300 other fighters.
The ministry said the strike came as ISIS leaders gathered to discuss the group's withdrawal from Raqqa, their de facto capital.
