Erdoğan says Turkey has captured Baghdadi's wife

News Service AA, Reuters

Turkey has captured the wife of Daesh leader al-Baghdadi, who was recently killed in an operation by U.S. forces in Syria, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan announced Wednesday.

"The United States said Baghdadi killed himself in a tunnel. They started a communication campaign about this," Erdogan said in a speech at Ankara University. "But, I am announcing it here for the first time: We captured his wife and didn't make a fuss like them. Similarly, we also captured his sister and brother in law in Syria."

A senior Turkish official said earlier this week that Turkey had captured Baghdadi's sister, her husband and daughter.
