'You won't stop our march on Rome' says ISIS audio - update

ISIS chief's latest audio message allegedly proves he's alive

(ANSA) - New York, November 13 - Extremist group Islamic State (ISIS) on Thursday released an audio message purportedly by its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, in a bid to disprove unconfirmed reports of his death or injury in a recent United States air strike.
    "Make the volcanoes of jihad erupt everywhere," the audio message said.
    "The crusaders' missiles will not stop our advance on Rome".
    In it, a man identified as al-Baghdadi references President Barack Obama's announcement Friday that the US will send 1,500 additional troops to Iraq, according to the SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors global terrorist activity.
