IS spokesman and head of external operations Abu Muhammad al-Adnani is pictured in this undated handout photoIslamic State says al-Adnani, one of its most prominent and longest-serving leaders, was killed in what appeared to be an airstrike on a vehicle traveling in the Syrian town of al-Bab, depriving the militant group of the man in charge of directing attacks overseas.
