【看英文中國郵報學英文】IS集團的影子領導人阿布·巴克爾·巴格達迪(Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi)主導了全球恐怖攻擊,並可以說是情報局最想抓到的人。在敘利亞遭到美國的軍事襲擊後,他被認為已經死亡。

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the shadowy leader of the Islamic State group who presided over its global jihad and became arguably the world’s most wanted man, is believed dead after being targeted by a U.S. military raid in Syria.

一名美國官員周六晚對美聯社說,巴格達迪在敘利亞西北部的伊德利卜省遭到襲擊。這位官員說,有關IS負責人在爆炸中喪生的確認工作正在等待中,沒有其他詳細信息。該官員無權討論,並只能在匿名的情況下發言。

A U.S. official told The Associated Press late Saturday that al-Baghdadi was targeted in Syria’s northwestern Idlib province. The official said confirmation that the IS chief was killed in an explosion is pending. No other details were available. The official was not authorized to discuss the strike and spoke on the condition of anonymity.
