BAGHDAD - About a dozen civilians were wounded on Thursday by Islamic State mortar shells as they tried to escape from a district held by the militants in Mosul, Iraqi police said.

On Wednesday, an air strike by the US-led coalition killed the founder of the Islamic State propaganda media outlet Amaq in the eastern Syrian province of Deir al-Zor, his brother said in a Facebook post.

Reuters could not independently confirm whether he had been killed. There was no immediate comment from the United States-led coalition against Islamic State.



The post said the strike killed Rayan Meshaal and his daughter in their home in the city of al-Mayadin. Syrian opposition activists had been sharing news of Meshaal's death on social media.
