2 Suspected IS Militants Killed in Turkey

Turkish police killed two suspected self-styled Islamic State militants in a clash during a raid on an apartment in the capital Ankara overnight. It said the two men killed were believed to be planning an attack and police seized guns and grenades in the apartment in an operation launched after a tipoff from a suspect detained in Istanbul, state-run Anadolu Agency reported on Sunday  The raid occurred ahead of the ruling AK Party’s congress in the city on Sunday when it was expected to elect President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as leader after constitutional reforms approved last month in a referendum granting him sweeping new powers. Ankara’s Governor Ercan Topaca told Anadolu at the scene of the raid that the detained suspect, an Azeri citizen, was still being questioned in Istanbul and was believed to have brought the two men to Ankara by car.
