The Iraqi ministry of defence says the second-in-command of Islamic State has been killed in a US-led coalition air strike in northern Iraq.

Abdul Rahman Mustafa Mohammed, also known as Abu Alaa al-Afari, was at a mosque near Tal Afar that was targeted.

However, the US military later denied coalition planes had attacked a mosque.

In recent weeks, there were unconfirmed reports that Afari had taken temporary charge of IS operations.

Iraqi sources claimed IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had been injured as a result of an air strike in Iraq in March.
