One of ISIS leader al-Baghdadi's wives has been captured by Turkish forces in Syria, along with his sister and brother-in-law, says President Erdogan.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says his forces have captured ISIS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's wife, sister and brother-in-law in Syria.

'The United States said Baghdadi killed himself in a tunnel. They started a communication campaign about this,' Erdogan said in a speech at Ankara University on Wednesday.

'But, I am announcing it here for the first time: We captured his wife and didn't make a fuss like them. Similarly, we also captured his sister and brother in law in Syria.'

Earlier this week Turkey revealed it had captured Baghdadi's older sister, Rasmiya Awad, who was was found living in a trailer with her family in Syria.
