Turkish police have detained a Belgian man of Moroccan origin on suspicion of scouting the target sites for Islamic State in the Paris attacks a week ago, according to the Dogan news agency.

Ahmet Dahmani, 26, was detained at a luxury hotel in the southern coastal city of Antalya, Dogan said, but has yet to cite its sources.

The report said two other men, both Syrian citizens, were also held on a nearby highway on suspicion that they had been sent to help Dahmani across the border.
