BAGHDAD (AP) - An Iraqi official says the woman being detained in Lebanon who's believed to be a wife of the Islamic State group leader, is not.

Iraq's Interior Ministry says the woman is actually the sister of a terror suspect who's being held in Iraq.

Lebanese officials have said that the woman is married to the reclusive IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and that a child with her is their son.
