ISTANBUL (REUTERS) - Turkish police detained 100 people in three separate operations on Friday (Nov 10) over suspected links to Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), state-run Anadolu news agency said.

It said police arrested 82 foreign nationals in an operation centred on Istanbul. Eleven more foreign nationals were arrested in the southern province of Adana and seven Turkish nationals were arrested in the western province of Izmir.

Weapons and documents were also seized, Anadolu said.

The raids came a day after police arrested more than 190 people suspected of having ties to ISIS in the capital Ankara and northwestern province of Bursa.
