Fugitive Iraqi militant leader Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri, who was right-hand man to Iraq's ex-leader Saddam Hussein, has been killed.

They say he died in fighting in Salahuddin province, north of Baghdad but his supporters have denied the claim.

Douri, led the Naqshbandi Order insurgent group, a key force behind the recent rise of Islamic State.

He was deputy to Saddam Hussein, who was ousted when US-led forces invaded Iraq in 2003 and executed in 2006.
