Daech releases new audio message by the leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi

US confirms additional 50 civilian deaths in Iraq, Syria

But U.S. officials said they could not corroborate the death and other Western as well as Iraqi officials were skeptical.

The date and whereabouts of the message's recording were unclear.

The voice purporting to be al-Baghdadi's also urged followers to intensify attacks on the "headquarters" and "media centers" of perceived enemies.

"The leaders of the islamic State and its soldiers realized that to obtain the grace of God and victory, we must exercise patience and resist in the face of the infidels, regardless of their alliances", lance-t-il. Another current event: Baghdadi refers to North Korean "nuclear threats to America" during an argument that the USA isn't the world's top superpower anymore.

"The fighters in Mosul refused to surrender the city at the cost of their flesh and blood", Baghdadi said, according to the Guardian newspaper.

Gareth Southgate makes squad announcement for England's final World Cup qualifiers
England require just two points from their matches against Slovenia and Lithuania to qualify for next year's World Cup finals in Russian Federation .

Raqqa, which was the capital of the group's self-declared caliphate too has been under siege by United States-backed forces for several months.

The audio released on Thursday was the first message from Al-Baghdadi since November 2016.

It is under attack in its remaining enclaves in Iraq and is facing parallel Russian and US-backed offensives in Syria.

Russian Federation and the Syrian regime claimed this year that the Isis leader was killed in an airstrike in May in or near Raqqa, his supposed capital.

With this move, the Islamic State hopes to clear up confusion on whether Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is alive or dead, since a number of conflicting reports over the summer couldn't prove that either was the case.

Pence made the comments in an interview on WGAN radio Tuesday morning. "We basically ran out of time ", said Sen. Ms Collins also said the bill weakened protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

In the latest 46-minute audio recording, Baghdadi praises ISIS fighters in Mosul, who he said, "did not give up except over their skulls and body parts". The Pentagon has reportedly said it has "no reason to believe tape is not authentic".

Suffering downfall for months now, ISIS has been steadily losing territory recently in Iraq and Syria.

If true, it would be the first communication from the reclusive militant leader in almost a year.

In July, ISIS lost Mosul in Iraq, which had been the largest city it controlled.

The US-led coalition fighting Islamic State militants, which includes Australia, has confirmed that another 50 civilians have been killed in strikes in Iraq and Syria.

Ringgit lower against USA dollar in early trade
Even still, if the economy was to visibly weaken in the coming months, the likelihood of a December hike will go down. There were many uncertainties, however, and downward pressure on inflation could prove unexpectedly persistent.
