Eight foreign suspects detained over links to IS in Turkey

Istanbul, Oct 14 Turkish police detained eight foreign nationals in two separate operations over their suspected links to the Islamic State (IS) militant group.

At an operation conducted in Turkey's western province of Izmir, police captured seven Syr who were accused of working on behalf of the IS, the state-run Anadolu agency said.

Police are continuing to capture one more suspect who is at large, it added.

Additionally, an Iraqi national who has alleged links to the terror group was detained in the Central Anatolian province of Nigde, according to the agency.

The IS was blamed for a spate of deadly attacks in Turkey since 2015, killing more than 300 people, reported Xinhua.
