Turkish security forces found a 2kg cylinder with sarin gas after searching the homes of Syrian militants from the Al-Qaeda linked Al-Nusra Front who were previously detained, Turkish media reports. The gas was reportedly going to be used in a bomb.
The sarin gas was found in the homes of suspected Syrian
Islamists detained in the southern provinces of Adana and Mersia
following a search by Turkish police on Wednesday, reports say.
The gas was allegedly going to be used to carry out an attack in
the southern Turkish city of Adana.
