ISLAMIC State's (ISIS) finance chief has been killed in airstrikes by the US-led coalition, foreign media reports.

Muwaffaq Mustafa Mohammed al-Karmoush, also known by his code name Abu Salah, and two other senior leaders were killed in the bombings which took place in "recent weeks"

US military spokesman Col Steve Warren confirmed the deaths from the Iraqi capital Baghdad.

Col Warren said Salah was "one of the most senior and experienced members" of the militant group's financial network.

Col Warren said: "Killing him and his predecessors exhausts the knowledge and talent needed to co-ordinate funding within the organisation."

Brett McGurk, special US presidential envoy for the global coalition to counter IS, said on Twitter the three were killed "as part of the coalition campaign to destroy Isil's financial infrastructure."

No further details were given about the airstrike that killed Salah, foreign media reports.
