Iraqi and U.S. coalition forces carried out airstrikes against ISIS leaders near the city of Mosul, Iraq Saturday, and, according to some reports, they might have severely injured the group's leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Baghdadi, shown here in an extremely rare public appearance, took control of the group in 2010 and is one of the best-known militant leaders in the world.
A report from Iraq's interior ministry Sunday claimed Baghdadi was wounded, possibly gravely, in an Iraqi-led military operation. The Pentagon has yet to confirm. (Video via U.S. Central Command)
