Baghdadi was buried at sea by the US military after he killed himself

Washington: The body of Daesh group chief Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi was buried at sea by the US military after he killed himself during the weekend raid on his Syrian hideout, a Pentagon source told AFP on Monday.

No details were given on where or when the body was disposed of, but it paralleled the 2011 sea burial of Al Qaida leader Osama bin Laden after he was killed in a US special forces raid in Pakistan.

“The disposal of his remains has been done, is complete and was handled appropriately,” said General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
