"Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was a family man", says wife

  • Saga al-Dulmaimi, the wife of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, said in a interview that Baghdadi was a normal family man before he declared himself as “caliph” of Islamic State and later on became the most wanted terrorist with a bounty of $10 million on his head. She said that at the time she got married to him he was a normal person who was a university lecturer and his name was Hisham Mohammad. It was only later on that she found out about his involvement with the extremist group. She also said that Baghdadi was an ideal father but her relationship with Baghdadi was shallow.
