Turkey has captured a wife of former Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
President Tayyip Erdogan made the announcement on Wednesday (November 6) more than a week after Baghdadi killed himself during a raid by U.S. special forces.

"We captured his wife but we didn't make a big fuss. I am announcing it here for the first time. At the same time, we 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-in-law.
And, that the hope was to gain intelligence from them about Islamic State.
While world leaders have welcomed Baghdadi's death - they and security experts warn the group remains a security threat in Syria and beyond.
