ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE  - The Obama administration is not aware of any facts suggesting Russia was involved in the death of prominent Islamic State leader Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, a White House spokesman said on Wednesday.

Moscow had claimed that Russian air strikes in Syria had killed Adnani. US defense officials said earlier that Russia's claim is a "joke."
