Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, notorious leader of ISIS terrorist group, has been reportedly arrested by American forces in Iraq, a Turkish news paper reported on Sunday.
 
Yeni Şafak daily cited an unnamed Syrian source, as saying that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi "was captured in Iraq by the US and was then brought to Syria’s al-Karamah region."

"The source, who was previously a militant part of Jund al-Aqsa, said that Baghdadi was first taken to the US base in Ras al-Ayn and then to a US base in al-Hasakah-Rmeilan," the Turkish daily reported.

According to Şafak, along with Baghdadi seven other top ISIS commanders were also detained. One of them was an Iraqi national and the others were foreigners.
