Turkish police have detained a Belgian man of Moroccan origin on suspicion that he scouted out the target sites for ISIS in attacks that killed 129 people in Paris a week ago, the Dogan news agency said on Saturday.
Ahmet Dahmani, 26, was detained at a luxury hotel in the southern coastal city of Antalya, Dogan said, without citing its sources. Turkish officials could not immediately be reached for comment.
The report said two other men, both Syrian citizens, were also detained on a nearby highway on suspicion that they had been sent by ISIS in Syria to ensure Dahmani's safe passage across the border and were planning to meet him.
