Turkish security forces arrested Islom Saydalimov, who allegedly has links with Al Qaeda, in its southern Hatay province, the country's Interior Ministry announced Monday.

The ministry said in a statement that Saydalimov -- wanted on a red notice -- was caught by border forces in the Altinozu district with his wife and three children.

It added that they were referred to a local gendarmerie station.

Turkey's wanted list is divided into five color-coded categories, with red as the most wanted, followed by blue, green, orange and gray.
