Erdogan announces capturing of Al-Baghdadi's wife

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi

A day after Turkish officials announced that they had captured sister of slain Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Turkey President Tayyip Erdogan said that his wife was also captured. "I am announcing this today for the first time", Erdogan said, while criticizing the United States for leading a "communications campaign" about Baghdadi's slaying. "Similarly, we also captured his sister and brother in law in Syria", he said in a speech at Ankara University.

The president didn't give other details, such as the woman's name.

A senior USA official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that monitoring of Islamic State social media indicates that even followers did not know much about Hashimi.

"Do not rejoice, America, in killing Sheikh al-Baghdadi", a spokesman said on the recording, which was disseminated on the group's social media channel.

One of the women is an Iraqi known as Nour, the daughter of one of his aides.

"We discovered (the wife's) real identity pretty quickly".

He said a DNA test confirmed that another suspect was Baghdadi's daughter, and the detainees were being held at a deportation centre in Turkey.

Awad was with her husband, daughter-in-law and five children when she was detained.

Baghdadi, who led the Islamic State group since 2014, had become the world's most wanted person for the militants' grisly attacks both in the region and overseas.

World leaders have welcomed his death, but they and security experts warned that the group, also known as Isis, which carried out atrocities against religious minorities and horrified most Muslims, remained a security threat in Syria and beyond.

Trump said al-Baghdadi killed himself and three of his children, detonating a suicide vest as USA forces closed in after a "dangerous and daring" operation.

Since the declaration of the new leader, the IS arm has been posting pledges of allegiance from affiliates of the extremist group, offering support for the successor of al-Baghdadi.

President Donald Trump last week tweeted of the group's new leader that 'we know exactly who he is, ' but few details have emerged about Hashimi.
