US air strikes target Islamic State gathering in Iraq
Coalition air strikes have targeted a gathering of Islamic State leaders near Mosul in northern Iraq, the US has said.
Friday's strikes destroyed a convoy of vehicles, a US defence official said, but could not confirm whether IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was present.
Baghdadi made a rare public appearance at a mosque in Mosul in July.
