Unanswered questions and rumors swirled Tuesday about the identity of a woman and child detained by Lebanese security forces 10 days earlier, with some reports insisting she was one of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's wives and others saying her background was not yet clear.Dulaimi first drew international attention back in March when she was reported to be one of around 50 women released from prison by the Syrian government in return for the Nusra Front's release of 13 nuns captured in the Christian Syrian town of Maaloula. At the time, she was reported to be Baghdadi's wife due to comments by a Nusra Front commander, and several months later, pictures of a brown-eyed woman in a black headscarf emerged on the Internet purporting to be of the ISIS leader's bride. According to Mario Abou Zeid, an analyst at the Carnegie Center, Dulaimi is Baghdadi's second wife, but has been estranged from the militant leader for some time.
