Correction: A Twitter account affiliated with Al-I’tisaam Media wrote that it would publish details regarding the killing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and his succession. IraqiNews.com reported that fact after it was republished by the Iranian government owned Al Alam news network. The information and photographs which later appeared on the Al-I’tisaam Media Twitter account contained images connected to the death of another ISIS militant, not Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi. IraqiNews.com regrets that it did not wait for the Al-I’tisaam Media affiliated Twitter account to publish follow-up information in order to fully evaluate its veracity. We apologize to our readers for this error.
