US-led coalition ‘kills Islamic State finance chief’

Isil’s finance chief has been killed in a US-led coalition air strike, a Pentagon spokesman said on Thursday.

Colonel Steve Warren told reporters that Abu Salah, described as “one of the most senior and experienced members” of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s financial network, was one of three senior leaders killed by the coalition in late November.

The other two militants, who have not been named, were described as a senior leader responsible for coordinating the terror group’s extortion activities and another leader who acted as an executive officer.
