U.S. embassy in Ankara to reopen on March 7

The arrests come a day after Turkish authorities arrested in the Turkish Black Sea coastal city of Samsun four ISIL suspects, all of whom were Iraqi, in an investigation of a possible plot against the U.S. embassy in Ankara - forcing the American facility to shut down on Monday.

All detainees are citizens of Syria.

The mission's website urged Americans to "avoid large crowds" and "keep a low profile". They were allegedly trying to recruit members for ISIL and were in contact with people in "conflict zones".

The arrests came as the embassy was closed on Monday over an unspecified security threat.

"The U.S. Embassy in Ankara will be operating as normal and providing all regular services on Wednesday, March 7 onwards", embassy spokesman David Gainer.

The governor's office said it had received intelligence from US sources on possible terrorist threats and was upping security around the embassy and locations used by USA citizens in the Turkish capital.

Turkish police often carry out raids against IS across the country including one last month when 29 foreigners were detained in Istanbul over alleged links to the group.

The last attack I.S. claimed was in January 2017 when a gunman killed 39 people at an Istanbul nightclub during New Year's celebrations.
