Turkey Detains 4 ISIS Suspects Planning ‘Sensational’ Attack

Turkey’s state-run news agency says police have detained four Islamic State (ISIS) suspects who were allegedly planning to carry out a “sensational” attack.

Anadolu Agency said on Thursday the suspects were detained in an operation in Gaziantep, near the border with Syria. Police seized 24 suicide attack belts made with some 150kg of explosives, two automatic rifles and other material, it said.

There was no detail on the suspects’ nationalities.

Last year, Turkey suffered a series of deadly attacks carried out by ISIS or Kurdish militants.

Some 750 people with alleged ISIS links were detained in a major police sweep in 29 Turkish provinces last week.
