Ex-wife of ISIS leader: I want new life in Europe

By Around the Web

(CNN) She was married to the most wanted man in the world, the leader of ISIS.

In her first interview since her release from a Lebanese prison last year, Saja al-Dulaimi recalled to CNN Swedish affiliate Expressen TV what it was like to be Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s wife and what she fears for the daughter she bore with him.

Expressen said it spoke to Dulaimi, 28, in a secret location near the border of Lebanon and Syria.

CNN could not verify any of her claims, from those detailing her relationship with Baghdadi to her insistence she doesn’t support terrorism in any way. (In fact, she was part of a prisoner swap with al Nusra Front, an al Qaeda affiliate, according to a Lebanese security official.)
