Lebanese security officials claim to have detained the wife and child of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, at a border crossing into Lebanon.
Lebanese newspaper al-Safir broke the story of the arrest, which occurred more than a week ago, according to officials.
The pair were allegedly attempting to cross from Syria into Lebanon using forged papers. Al-Safir claims that foreign intelligence services alongside Lebanese security officials detained the two.
Currently they’re being held at the Lebanese defence ministry with DNA tests being carried out, according to reports.
Anonymous army officials told the New York Times “we still don’t know how valuable she is,” adding “the investigation is still focusing on whether Dulaimi is really Baghdadi’s wife.”
