Turkey says its police forces have detained 400 suspects linked to the Daesh terrorist group across the country, including in the capital city, Ankara.

Anti-terrorism police detained 60 Daesh-linked suspects in Ankara early on Sunday morning, according to a security source quoted by the state-run Anadolu news agency.

The suspects, reportedly mainly foreign nationals, were arrested during simultaneous raids in four different districts in the capital.

Some 150 other suspects were detained in Sanliurfa in Turkey’s southeast, and dozens of others were arrested in provinces ranging from Bursa in the west to Bingol in the east, the Dogan and Anadolu news agencies reported.

On New Year’s Eve, a gunman went on a shooting spree inside an Istanbul night club, killing 39 people. Daesh claimed responsibility for the massacre.

The suspected attacker, Abdulgadir Masharipov, an Uzbek national, was arrested on January 16 after over two weeks on the run.
