"We know where Daesh leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is hiding" says Iraqi PM

Daesh leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is virtually alone in hiding and is being closely monitored, Iraq’s prime minister has revealed, The Telegraph reports.

Haider al-Abadi, who is usually not drawn on the Daesh chief's whereabouts, confirmed that the elusive Iraqi-born jihadist’s location is known and he is being closely surveyed. 

He told France24 TV station that Baghdadi has few trusted aides left with so many senior leaders killed in coalition air strikes. 

“He’s almost alone at the moment. He doesn’t have many people to trust. He is in isolation, we’re monitoring his movements,” said Mr Abadi, adding that the Daesh group chief is keeping a very low profile. “His communication with other terrorists is very low. In many times, it is almost nonexistent.”
