links to IS
Turkish police detained six Iraqi nationals in the northern province of Samsun over their suspected links to the Islamic State (IS) militant group, local media reported on Friday. Police launched operations simultaneously in seven different locations across the city to capture the suspects, who were believed to carry out activities on behalf of the IS, the Ihlas news agency said. Police seized several digital materials, and the operations are continuing to find another suspect who is at large, it added.
The IS was blamed for a spate of deadly attacks over the years in Turkey, in which more than 300 people were killed. TLTP
