Turkey captures sister of slain IS leader Baghdadi in northern Syria

Turkey captured the sister of slain Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in the northern Syrian town of Azaz, and is interrogating her and her husband and daughter-in-law who were also detained. Rasmiya Awad, 65, was detained in a raid near Azaz, the official said, referring to a Turkish-controlled Syrian town near the border. When captured, she was also accompanied by five children. Little independent information is available on Baghdadi’s sister and Reuters was not immediately able to verify if the captured individual was her. Baghdadi killed himself last month when cornered in a tunnel during a raid by U.S. Special Forces in northwestern Syria.
