Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi reportedly received a proper burial at sea following his suicide during a U.S. military raid in northern Syria Saturday evening, two U.S. defense officials said according to CNN.
Al-Baghdadi died during a two-hour-long raid, and a DNA test confirmed the dead body is that of the ISIS leader, President Donald Trump said Sunday morning. White House national security adviser Robert O’Brien said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday that the U.S. would likely dispose of al-Badghdadi’s body in accordance with Islamic law.
