Turkish authorities have arrested three suspected members of ISIS group in Istanbul, including two Pakistanis and a Briton, state media said Tuesday.

 

The state-run Anatolia news agency said the Pakistani suspects had been detained last week in a raid on their homes in Istanbul’s central Mecidiyekoy district.

 

Police then expanded the operation based on intelligence the suspects provided and detained the British suspect, identified as Hasan H., at a bus stop in the conservative Fatih district, it added.

 

All have now been remanded in custody by a court.

 

Anatolia said that Hasan H. was believed to be linked to Aine Lesley Davis, a close associate of the notorious British ISIS militant known as “Jihadi John” who Washington believes was likely killed in a recent drone strike in Syria.
