Targeted US-led coalition air strikes have killed 10 Islamic State commanders in Iraq and Syria in the past month, a US military spokesman has said.

He named one as Charaffe al-Mouadan, who he said had a direct link to Paris attack cell leader Abdelhamid Abaaoud.

Another was a UK-educated Bangladeshi computer systems engineer, he said.
The US-led coalition has been targeting IS in Iraq and Syria for over a year.

Russia recently began its own air attacks against armed opponents of the Syrian government, including IS.

Syria-based Mouadan was killed in an air strike on 24 December, said Col Warren.

Another man with connections to the Paris attackers, Abdul Qader Hakim, died two days later in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, he added.
