ISIS' finance minister, Haji Imam, killed: Defense Officials
ISIS' finance minister was killed during an operation this month, defense officials announced Friday, a major score for the U.S.-led coalition as it tries to erode the terror group's grip on the region.
In addition to the death of Haji Imam this month, the Pentagon confirmed the killing of another top leader -- Omar al-Shishani -- in an earlier raid.

"Striking leadership is necessary, but it's far from efficient," Defense Secretary Ash Carter said at a news conference, adding that the U.S. is "systematically eliminating" ISIS' cabinet.
