The Pentagon said on Friday it did not have information to support Moscow's claims that its forces may have killed Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in an air strike near the Syrian city of Raqqa last month.

"We have no information to corroborate those reports," Pentagon spokesman Navy Captain Jeff Davis said.
