Turkey arrests 10 ISIS recruiters in Ankara

Turkish police on Monday arrested 10 people in the capital Ankara, accused of being recruiters for the Islamic State extremist group.

The police said in Ankara that the arrests followed a crackdown on Islamic State in the country, amid growing concerns over terrorist activities.

Turkey blamed Islamic State for a suicide bombing this month in Istanbul, which killed 10 German tourists.

The group is also being held responsible for a twin attack in Ankara in October, which left more than 100 people dead. Islamic State has not claimed either attack.
