First story in our lineup today is the death of the leader of an infamous terrorist group. Since 2014, news organizations around the world have done a lot of reporting on ISIS. It's an acronym for Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. And that's what it wanted to create — a new country, a theocracy in the Middle East based on ISIS's strict interpretation of Islam.
ISIS was a violent group, known for murdering scores of people who didn't share its beliefs. And while it existed years before 2014, that was the year it took control of large parts of Iraq and Syria. 2014 was also when ISIS's leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared himself to be the leader over all the world's 1.5 billion Muslims. Though that claim was rejected by many Muslims worldwide.
Between then and now, ISIS lost its territory in Iraq and Syria, as the international effort to fight it ramped up. The United States led a coalition, a group of countries in targeting ISIS fighters. And in March of this year, ISIS had fallen, with the defeat of its last stronghold in Syria.
That doesn't mean everyone who fought for the terrorist group is dead. In April, Islamic State released a video that it said contained a new message from al-Baghdadi. That was the first he'd been seen in more than five years.

But on Sunday morning, U.S. President Donald Trump said al-Baghdadi had been killed.
DONALD TRUMP, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: A brutal killer, one who has caused so much hardship and death, has violently been eliminated. He will never again harm another innocent man, woman or child.
AZUZ: The president says a U.S. Special Forces mission targeted the ISIS leader after keeping close track of him for weeks. The raid was carried out in northwest Syria. The U.S. says several ISIS fighters and companions of al-Baghdadi were killed with him in the mission. Though no American troops died.
President Trump says al-Baghdadi killed himself after becoming trapped at the end of a tunnel. And the American leader thanked several other countries and Kurdish fighters in Syria for their help with the mission.
While U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper called al-Baghdadi's death a devastating blow to ISIS, America and other nations said they'd stay on guard against the next terrorist leaders who appear.
