ISIS Leader’s Wife and Child Arrested in Lebanon
NBC News – One of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s wives and children have been arrested in Lebanon, the country’s defense ministry confirmed to NBC News. Col. Anis Khoury, a spokesman for the ministry, declined to offer further details and said the army is leading the investigation.
News of the arrest was initially reported by Reuters, which said the wife and a child were detained several days ago as they crossed from Syria. Lebanon’s leading Al Safir newspaper said the arrest was undertaken “in coordination with foreign intelligence services” and that Baghdadi’s wife was travelling under a false identity.
