(Worthy News) - Turkey's president on Wednesday announced the country's forces had captured multiple relatives of slain ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, including one of the terrorist's wives -- but he also used the occasion to needle the United States for making "a fuss" about the mission that resulted in the most-wanted militant's death.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan revealed during a speech in Ankara the news of the arrest of one of Baghdadi's wives and confirmed previous reports that the terrorist's sister and brother-in-law had also been taken into custody by Turkey.
Turkish officials said they took Baghdadi’s older sister, Rasmiya Awad, into custody on Monday. [ Source: Fox News (Read More...) ]
