ANKARA, Turkey – Turkey's state-run news agency says police have raided homes in an Ankara neighborhood, detaining at least 15 people suspected of links to the Islamic State group as Turkey presses ahead with a major security sweep.
Since Friday, Turkey has been carrying out airstrikes against IS targets in Syria and Kurdish rebel positions in northern Iraq. It has also arrested hundreds of people with suspected links to violent extremists.
On Sunday, it called for a meeting of its NATO allies to discuss threats to its security, as well as its airstrikes.
The Anadolu Agency says at least 15 people, including a number of foreign nationals, were detained Monday in an operation in Ankara's Haci Bayram neighborhood. It did not give details of the foreigners' home countries.
