BBC: IS leader Adnani: Russia says its air strike killed him
A Russian air strike in Syria killed the chief strategist of so-called Islamic State (IS), the defence ministry in Moscow has said.
The Amaq news agency, linked to IS, earlier acknowledged that Abu Muhammad al-Adnani had died in Aleppo province.
Russia says Adnani died on Tuesday in a Su-34 bomber raid on Umm Hawsh village.
The US said earlier that its planes had targeted Adnani in al-Bab city, but that it was "still assessing results".
