World Terrorists Threaten G20 Summit Meeting In Turkey

#1
As world leaders prepare for the G20 summit in Turkey, the Turkish police on Friday detained 20 people suspected of links to Islamic State.

This comes just a week ahead of the meeting. Turkey is imposing tight security ahead of the November 15-16 summit.



It will be held in a beach resort away from the centre of Antalya city, with some 11,000 police officers on duty to assure security.

The detentions in Antalya province were part of a series of police operations against suspected Islamic State members across Turkey, a major conduit for militants crossing into neighbouring Syria.

U.S. President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin are expected to be among the leaders attending the summit.

Turkey vowed to take a more active role in combating Islamic State in July and President Tayyip Erdogan has said operations against them will continue.
