Turkey arrests several IS suspects ahead of New Year

Turkish police have detained 94 people suspected of ties to Islamic State after conducting nationwide raids on Monday. More than 40 Iraqis, around 20 Syrians and a Moroccan were among those detained ahead of the New Year celebrations. The arrests come in the wake of the 2017 shooting at a nightclub in Istanbul when 39 people were killed by an IS gunman on New Year’s day.
