Turkish police on Monday arrested five Daesh-linked terror suspects during a counterterrorism operation in the country’s northeastern Trabzon province on Monday.

The suspects -- identified by the initials O.Y, E.U, S.Y.K, A.S. and A.Z.N -- were accused of making propaganda on social media for the terror group, according to local police department.

Apart from the Turkish currency, police also seized foreign currencies as well as some digital documents during the search.
