ISIL confirms death of propaganda chief - media
ISIL confirmed the death of its propaganda chief, whom the Pentagon said was killed in a US-led air strike in Syria's Raqqa province last month.
An statement posted online by the militant group paid tribute to Wa'il Adil Hasan Salman al-Fayad, also known as Abu Mohammed al-Furqan. The statement just referred to him by his alias.
It did not say when, where or how he had died, Reuters reports.
The Pentagon chief Peter Cook said last month that a US-led coalition air strike on Sept. 7 had killed al-Fayad.
It said he was minister of information, overseeing ISIL's propaganda, and a prominent member of its Senior Shura Council, or leadership group.
