IS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi has urged followers to continue their fight against the West.

An audio message has been released purporting to come from Islamic State leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi urging followers across the world to wage attacks against the West and to keep fighting in Iraq, Syria and elsewhere.

The communication released on Thursday was his first in nearly a year and comes after several reports that Baghdadi had been killed.

In the audio, he makes predominantly religious references, urging followers to continue the fight.

Crucially, he refers to certain world events including what's been going on in North Korea and therefore that suggests it is a new tape.

Suppose it could be somebody doing a possible imitation of Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi , or it is the real guy, they don't know where he is, he is extremely hard to find.
