Washington: An Islamic State leader with "direct" links to the alleged ringleader of the Paris attacks was killed in an air strike in Syria as he was plotting additional attacks, the Pentagon said yesterday.

Baghdad-based US military spokesman Colonel Steve Warren told reporters that Charaffe al Mouadan had been killed on December 24.

"He was a Syrian-based ISIS member with a direct link to Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the Paris attacks cell leader," Warren said.
