ISIS sacks Abubakar Shekau, appoints Abu Musab al-Barnawi as new leader for Boko Haram

The Islamic State (IS) militant group has announced that its West African affiliate Boko Haram has a new leader.

Abu Musab al-Barnawi, who was previously spokesman for the Nigerian-based Islamists, is featured in the latest issue of an IS magazine.

It does not say what has become of the group's former leader Abubakar Shekau.

He was last heard from in an audio message last August, saying he was alive and had not been replaced - an IS video released in April said the same.
