Turkish police have detained a senior member of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), the country’s interior minister announced on Tuesday.

“Daesh’s so-called emir of Turkey was captured with important plans and taken into custody,” Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu said on Twitter.

  Soylu identified the detainee as Mahmut Ozden but gave no further details.

  ISIL has in the past targeted Turkey with at least 10 suicide bombings, seven bombings and four armed assaults that killed 315 people and injured hundreds of others.
