TURKISH POLICE ARREST 12 NUSRA FRONT SUSPECTS IN DIYARBAKIR

Twelve suspected members of the Nusra Front terrorist group were arrested in police raids in southeastern Diyarbakır province Tuesday, a police source said.

The Diyarbakır Counter Terrorism Police unit launched the operation under an ongoing probe of the public prosecutor's office, the source said, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.

Police also seized digital documents during the operation.

Turkey designates Nusra Front as a terrorist organization and continues to fight against the Al Qaeda-linked group, both inside and outside the country.
