ISIS provocation prevented in Turkey

Turkish police detained six suspected ISIS militants for planning to attack a three-week-old protest march led by the head of the main opposition party, Kayseri Governor Suleyman Kamci said.

"Following a nice tip-off, our police detained a group of six Islamic State militants. They were planning to attack the convoy with a minibus," Kamci told the Hurriyet newspaper.

He did not specify what sort of attack was allegedly planned but ISIS militants have carried out both bomb and gun attacks in Turkey in the past. Police and officials were not immediately available for comment.

Kamci said the suspects rented a black minibus in Kayseri on Tuesday, and that four of them were detained in Kayseri and two in Kocaeli province, through which the protesters were marching on Wednesday, Reuters reported.
