ISIS Leader, Missouri Abortion Clinic, Phishing | Skimm This | theSkimm

It’s October 28th. Today, we Skimm’d This: 

  • President Trump announced yesterday that the leader of ISIS died during a US military raid, and his death could mark a turning point for the terrorist organization – and for the countries trying to fight it. 
  • Starting today, a Missouri state commission will hear arguments about whether the state should renew a license for the state’s last remaining abortion clinic.
  • Wildfires are continuing to spread throughout California, leading to the largest planned power outage in the state’s history. 
  • The internet’s been around for a while, and phishing attacks are getting better with age. 

The leader of ISIS died during a US military raid in Syria over the weekend. We’ll explain who Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was, and what his death means for ISIS – and for the world. Meanwhile, there’s only one clinic in Missouri that can perform abortions, and it could soon be forced to close. We’ll explain how a hearing this week could lead to Missouri becoming the first state in the country without access to abortion services. Also on today’s show: California’s wildfires are heating up, and phishing scams are becoming fishier.
