Western countries are looking for the ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi in Libya after reports he escaped due to his organization's decline in Syria and Iraq, the Daily Express newspaper reported.

"Baghdad is in Libya after he fled from Syria," the Daily Express quoted a British intelligence report as saying Sunday.

According to the British newspaper, the intelligence of Al-Baghdadi's escape to Libya came two weeks after the air force to evacuate a British army unit after the rapid progress Libyan National Army forces towards Tripoli.

British, American and Italian planes are carrying out round-the-clock flights in search of a symbol to define Al-Baghdadi as a target.

"We collect high-quality intelligence, and we can assign names and groups to people we knew or were part of the inner circle of the organization," a military source said.
