AYDIN, Turkey

Police in Turkey arrested a murder suspect sought by Interpol on Friday, security sources said.

Thomas Kenet McConnel, 35, who allegedly committed a homicide in Ireland was arrested in the western Aydin province, said the source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

McConnel was taken into custody and sent to a prison after proceedings in the police station.
