    (ANSAmed) - BEIRUT - The woman arrested by Lebanese authorities as she was trying to get into the country from Syria with fake documents was married to Abu Bakr al Baghdadi for three months, six years ago, and had a daughter with him, local media reported on Thursday, quoting statements by Interior Minister Nuhad Machnuk.

    The woman, identified as Saja al Dulaimi, was travelling with the daughter she had with the ISIS chief, as well as her two other children. She is now expecting from her current husband, a Palestinian.

    DNA tests on the little girl, carried out thanks to samples sent by Iraqi authorities, have confirmed she is al Baghdadi's child. She has been entrusted, together with her two brothers, to a childcare facility while her mother was arrested over her connections with jihadist groups.

    Yesterday, the Iraqi interior ministry was the first to deny that Saja al Dulaimi was still married to the leader of ISIS, publishing the names of his current two wives: Asmaa Fawzi Mohammad Al Dulaimi and Israa Rajab Mahal Al Qaissi.(ANSAmed).
