Turkish police earlier this year uncovered what they claim to be a plot linked to al Qaeda to bomb a synagogue in Istanbul and the U.S. embassy in Ankara.
Twelve people were arrested during a raid in February on two houses in Istanbul and Corlu in February, the New York Times reported on Thursday, quoting Turkish media.
Eight of them were Turks, two were Chechens and two were Azeris.
