Despite losing all territory, Islamic State’s leader is still at large

Sunday 21:48 GMT

The Islamic State group has lost all the territory it once controlled in Iraq and Syria, but its shadowy leader and self-proclaimed “caliph” is still at large.

Al-Baghdadi’s fighters went onto to capture a contiguous stretch of territory across Iraq and Syria, including key cities such as Raqqa in Syria and Mosul in Iraq. Nusra Front’s leader Abu Mohammad al-Golani refused to accept the takeover — as did al-Qaida’s central leadership, which broke with al-Baghdadi.

On Wednesday morning, Trump called the Republican strategist George Conway, the husband of his adviser Kellyanne, a “whackjob”, a “stone-cold loser” and the “husband from hell”. “I guess Melania’s ‘Be Best’ campaign hasn’t quite started to kick in,” Kimmel mused, in reference to the first lady’s program to end cyberbullying.

As he drove closer, the full scene emerged - people standing staring at the wreckage of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 spread out over a wheat field, just hours after it had come down.

Some might assume that a press photographer’s job in such a situation is to get in close and grab the most dramatic pictures, no matter how graphic. It was very emotional, very tough,” said the 30-year-old, who grew up in a small town just the other side of the capital Addis Ababa.
