$10 million for information on leader of Islamic State: US

WASHINGTON: The US has offered a bounty of 10 million dollars since 2011 for the information on Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the top leader of the self-proclaimed "Islamic State" spanning parts of Iraq and Syria, the State Department said Wednesday.

The reward was offered in October 2011 but remains "active" as Washington is seeking information that can lead to al-Baghdadi's location and arrest, Xinhua quoted the State Department as stating in response to an enquiry by the press.
