    Turkey arrests Syrian Nusra Front militants -media

    ANKARA, May 30 (Reuters) - Turkish authorities have arrested a group of Syria's al Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front militants who allegedly had been planning an attack inside Turkey and were in possession of the nerve agent sarin, local media reported on Thursday.
    While they could not be immediately confirmed, the reports highlight the growing concerns that Syria's civil war is dragging in neighbouring states.

    The 12 Nusra members were arrested in the southern city of Adana, some 100 km (60 miles) from Syria, during raids at their addresses where police uncovered 2 kg (4.5 pounds) of sarin as well as heavy weapons, Taraf, Cumhuriyet and Aksam, as well as several other dailies reported.
