US air strikes destroyed a moving, 10-vehicle Islamic State convoy near the Iraqi city of Mosul but US officials said on Saturday it was unclear whether the group's top commander Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was present at the time.

Colonel Patrick Ryder, a spokesman at the US military's Central Command, said the US military had reason to believe that the convoy was the product of a gathering of Islamic State leaders. The convoy consisted of 10 Islamic State armed trucks.
