PUTRAJAYA: The two arrested Turkish nationals, who were earlier believed to have been abducted, were under police watch for alleged links to the Islamic State (IS) terror group, said Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

The Deputy Prime Minister said the police's anti-terrorism unit had been monitoring the communications made by the two — identified as Turgay Karaman and Ihsan Aslan — and had reason to arrest them under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act (Sosma) for further investigation.
