A terrorist who has masterminded ISIS' reign of terror has today been pictured for the first time in almost five years.
Abu Bakr al-Baghdad has been leader of ISIS for almost nine years, a period in which he has led large-scale operations such as high-profile suicide bombings and bloody attacks.
Photos have today emerged capturing the elusive terrorist for the first time since 2014.
In them, Baghdadi sits in a casual setting with other ISIS militants.
The pictures were taken from footage released by ISIS media outlet al-Furqan, which Mirror Online has decided not to publish.
In it, he talks about the war against "Crusaders" and about battles in Syria being over.
Baghdadi's whereabouts have been unknown for some time.
