Turkish police nab 17 over alleged links to IS

Istanbul: Turkish police on Thursday detained 17 people in Istanbul over their alleged links to the Islamic State (IS) militant group, a local media outlet reported.

Police launched operations simultaneously in 18 locations across the largest Turkish city to capture the suspects who were allegedly in contact with the IS members in conflict zones, the Sozcu daily said.

Anti-terrorism units continue operations to find two other suspects who are at large, it added.

The IS is blamed for a series of attacks in Turkey since 2015 that have killed more than 300 people.
