Turkey on Monday launched a crackdown on the Islamic State extremist group and boosted security in Ankara after the US embassy said it would be closed for a day. The Ankara prosecutor said 12 suspects had been detained after it issued 20 arrest warrants as part of an operation against IS, state news agency Anadolu reported. IS has lost control of swathes of Iraq and Syria after US-led military operations but it still holds sway over small pockets in Syria.
