2 arrested over plotting New Year's Eve attack in Turkey.

ANKARA (TAP) - Turkish police on Wednesday detained two suspected members of the Islamic State militant group believed to have been plotting suicide attacks in the capital Ankara on New Year's Eve.

The state-run Anadolu Agency said the two suspects, both Turkish nationals, were detained in a raid on a house in the capital, Ankara.

The agency, quoting an official from the chief prosecutor's office, says police seized suicide vests armed with bombs.

Turkey is on high security alert after 103 people were killed on Oct. 10 when two suicide bombers ripped through a crowd of peace activists in Ankara.
