White House: U.S. special forces kill key Islamic State leader

ISIS leader killedU.S. Special Forces killed a suspected senior leader of the Islamic State militant group and detained his wife during an operation in Syria, the White House said Saturday. A young Yezidi woman believed to be held as a slave by the couple was also taken into custody.
