 Most wanted Australian terrorist arrested in Turkey

One of Australia's most wanted terrorists, Neil Prakash, has been arrested in Turkey months after a drone strike that was believed to have killed him in Iraq.

His arrest by Australian and Turkish authorities has raised the possibility that he may be extradited to Australia to face a raft of charges following his three-year stint as one of ISIS's most influential recruiters, propagandists and attack planners.

Australian authorities confirmed the paper's claims that he was arrested by a Middle Eastern government in the past few weeks. They are now in talks with their Turkish counterparts about what charges he may face in Turkey, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

He could also face a raft of other charges related to foreign fighting, recruitment and attack planning.
