A Belgian man of Moroccan origin, Ahmed Dahmani, was arrested on Saturday by Turkish police on the suspicion that he scouted out target locations for DAESH terrorists in Paris attacks that killed 130 people on Nov. 13.
Dahmani was arrested at a luxury hotel in Turkey’s southern province of Antalya, where the G20 Summit was held with the participation of world leaders last weekend.
Along with Dahmani, two other DAESH terrorists were arrested on the same day. Police identified the two other men as Syrian citizens, Ahmed Tahir and Muhammad Verd.
The two were captured on a nearby highway on the suspicion that they were planning to help Dahmani to cross the Turkish border and enter Syria
Earlier in the week, Turkish security forces detained eight suspects, all Moroccan nationals, over having links with the terrorist organization DAESH at Istanbul's Ataturk Airport.
The police said that the suspects were coming from Casablanca and planning to cross into Germany illegally.
