The US-led coalition unleashed airstrikes near the Iraqi city of Mosul targeting top militants but the fate of the Islamic State group's enigmatic leader remained unclear.

Claims swirled that hard-line IS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had been killed in the attacks late Friday, but US officials could not confirm if he had even been present.

The news came after US President Barack Obama unveiled plans to send up to 1,500 more US troops to Iraq to help battle the militants who have seized a large swath of territory.

In fresh violence, some 33 people were killed in a wave of car bombings against Shiite areas in the capital Baghdad, highlighting again the security challenge facing Iraqis even within government-controlled zones.
