Islamic State has released an audio message it says is from its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, which if confirmed would be the first in months.

The message urges Muslims to emigrate to the "caliphate" it has proclaimed in areas of Syria and Iraq.

Analysts say the voice appears to be Baghdadi's but this is not verified.

Baghdadi's fate has been unclear amid reports of air strikes by the US-led coalition that is opposing IS.

The message came as IS advanced to within 2km of the Unesco World Heritage site of Palmyra, one of the archaeological jewels of the Middle East.
