Man 'linked to Jihadi John' detained in Turkey

Authorities in Turkey have detained a man they suspect is linked to Mohammed Emwazi, the Islamic State militant known as Jihadi John.

An official said the man, who they strongly believe to be Aine Lesley Davis, was detained in Istanbul, without providing further details.

Authorities were still investigating to confirm his identity "one hundred per cent," the official said.
