US offers $25 million reward for info leading to al-Baghdadi
WASHINGTON - The United States has more than doubled its offer of a reward to $25 million for information leading to the Islamic State's self-proclaimed caliph.
The State Department had previously offered $10 million for information that helps the U.S. determine the location of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, or arrest and convict him.
The agency says that under al-Baghdadi, IS has been responsible for thousands of deaths in the Middle East, including American citizens, and terrorist attacks elsewhere.
