- US President Donald Trump has revealed the picture of the dog that chased ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi into the dead-end tunnel, where he detonated his suicide vest, killing himself and three children.
President Trump did not however name the military dog or the breed. The dog was wounded in the blast but is recovering, military sources said.
Trump tweeted: “We have declassified a picture of the wonderful dog (name not declassified) that did such a GREAT JOB in capturing and killing the Leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi!”
The AFP suggested that the unnamed dog could be a Belgian Malinois, a breed favoured by the US military, which chased Baghdadi into a tunnel under the complex and cornered him before he detonated his suicide vest.
