BEIRUT (Reuters) - The Lebanese army detained Islamic State in Iraq and Syria leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's wife and one of his sons as they crossed from Syria in recent days, Lebanese security officials said on Tuesday.

The officials declined to give the name or nationality of the woman whom they described as one of his wives.

The Lebanese newspaper As-Safir reported the army had detained her in coordination with "foreign intelligence apparatus".
