Iraq says ISIS remains threat, leader Baghdadi filmed video in 'remote area'

Abo Bakr al-Baghdadi

Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi said on Tuesday that ISIS remained a potent threat around the world despite reduced capabilities and that its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had made his latest video appearance in a "remote area".

Abd al-Mahdi did not say what country that area was in. He said Baghdadi's purported video appearance, which was released online late on Monday, was an attempt to boost ISIS militants and that the group would attempt to carry out more attacks.
