RESTRICTIONS: Broadcast: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN Digital: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN President Trump announced on Sunday that the U.S. has brought the fugitive leader of the Islamic State to justice in a "dangerous and daring" night time raid.

CNN reports that according to Trump, eight helicopters carrying U.S. troops flew towards ISIS leader Abu-Bakr al-Baghdadi's compound in the Syrian village of Barisha on Saturday night.

The helicopters were met with local gunfire while in transit, but returned fire and eliminated the threat.

At the compound, troops avoided the booby-trapped main door and breached a wall to gain entry into the building.

According to Trump, U.S. forces killed a "large number" of militants during a gun battle.

At least two ISIS fighters were captured, and 11 children rescued.

Two of Baghdadi's wives were also killed, but their suicide vests were unexploded.

Baghdadi, who also wore a suicide vest, fled to an underground tunnel with three children while being chased by U.S. Delta Forces and K9 units.

He detonated his vest after running into a dead-end, killing himself and the children.

The explosion caused the tunnel to collapse, and caused serious injury to one dog, though.

No U.S. personnel were killed." The BBC reports that while the blast mutilated Baghdadi's body, an on-site DNA test positively confirmed his identity.
