US claims to kill IS propaganda chief

An Islamic State propaganda chief was killed in a US-led coalition airstrike in the western Iraqi city of Al-Qaim on Saturday, the coalition reported on Thursday.

Spokesman for the anti-IS coalition Joseph Scrocca said Ibrahim Al-Ansari was an important chief for IS's foreign recruitment and attack encouragement in Western countries. Another US Defence Department official said the strike also destroyed a multimedia operation team responsible for "brainwashing young children to perpetuate IS's brutal methods".
