Turkey: Suspected IS militant from Russia arrested over plan to down US plane

Anti-terror police detained a Russian citizen and alleged member of the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) in the southern Turkish city of Adana, Thursday, on suspicion of planning an attack on Incirlik Air Base.

Renat Bakiev is suspected of planning to use a drone to bring down a US plane at the airbase used by many of Turkey’s NATO allies, before going on to target members of the Alevi community in the area.

Anti-terror police were tipped off that Bakiev was scoping out sites close to the air base.
