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.
