Irish police arrested a man in Dublin earlier this week who they suspected of being an ISIS extremistand who had been under surveillance since he was deported from Turkey.
Last Thursday the suspect attempted to fly from Dublin to Istanbul, but he was sent back to Ireland as authorities in the Turkish city felt that there were “irregularities” with the Eastern European passport he was using.
On his return to Dublin, Irish police (gardaí) made the decision not to arrest him but placed the man in his 30s under surveillance as he left Dublin airport.
Earlier this week, however, gardaí decided to arrest the man and his Dublin home was raided on Monday. He was brought to a police station in the city center for questioning and his passport was seized.
