BEIRUT — A founding member and chief spokesman for Islamic State, Abu Mohammed al Adnani, was killed on a battlefield in northern Syria, the militant group said Tuesday.

Adnani was known for lengthy speeches promoting Islamic State, conveying messages from leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. He would issue messages online lambasting jihadist rival al Qaeda and its leadership while imploring Islamic State supporters to take up arms and launch attacks in their home countries, from Australia to France.
