ISIS erklærte søndag sine områder for et nytt kalifat, under emiren Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi og sa at alle muslimer i verden skyldte dem lydighet.

A spokesperson for Isis said the organisation’s ruling shura council had decided to establish the caliphate, a sovereign state believed by many muslims to be the official inheritor of the Prophet Mohammed’s temporal and spiritual authority. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Isis’s enigmatic leader, was declared caliph in a move the group said now required all muslims around the world to pledge allegiance to him.
