Daesh leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi is believed to have fled an attempted coup by fighters within his own group last month, senior regional intelligence officials have told the Guardian. The incident, believed to have taken place on 10 January, took place in Hajin in the eastern province of Deir Ez-Zor, where Daesh fighters have been battling with the international coalition. In the midst of the fighting, foreign militants reportedly planned to oust Al-Baghdadi, who managed to quickly escape the town with the help of his bodyguards.
