Television reports say Turkish police have detained more than a dozen suspects allegedly linked to the al-Qaida terror network. Dogan news agency television showed anti-terrorism police wearing black ski masks and brandishing automatic assault rifles during a raid Tuesday in the southern city of Gaziantep, where a clash with suspected al-Qaida gunmen killed five people last year. Dogan says police detained a suspect who had been to Afghanistan recently, and his wife. CNN-Turk television says more suspects allegedly affiliated with al-Qaida were detained in coordinated raids in the southern city of Sanliurfa and central city of Konya. Turkish officials say dozens of Islamic terrorists from Turkey have had military training in al-Qaida camps in Afghanistan.
