The Islamic State (IS) group has released a new message purportedly from its reclusive leader, claiming his self-styled "caliphate" is doing "well" despite an unprecedented alliance against it.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi said in a 24-minute audio message posted on St Stephen's Day that airstrikes by the international coalition only increase his group's determination and resolve.
