Australian PM says arrest by Turkish authorities was routine

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Thursday (April 25) that the arrest by Turkish authorities of a suspected member of the Islamic State group was "routine" and reports are inconclusive on whether the man was planning to attack an ANZAC Day commemoration at Gallipoli.

Speaking to media in Townsville, Morrison cautioned over-stating links between the arrest and the planned commemoration at Gallipoli, attended by hundreds of Australians and New Zealanders.

Anzac Day commemorates the bloody battle on the Gallipoli peninsula in Turkey during World War One.

On April 25, 1915, thousands of troops from the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) were among a larger Allied force that landed on the narrow beaches of the Gallipoli peninsula, an ill-fated campaign that would claim more than 130,000 lives.

While the Gallipoli campaign against the Turks failed, the landing date of April 25 has become a major day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand for their troops killed in all military conflicts.
