Stung by attacks, Turkey toughens stance against IS

Turkey has said it will seal its border with Syria and step up raids against Islamic State suspectsLong criticised by its allies for taking too soft a line against jihadists, Turkey is taking firmer action against the Islamic State (IS) on the border with Syria after being shaken by attacks on its soil and the Paris assaults. Ankara is sealing its border to the jihadists who moved to and fro across the frontier during much of the four-year civil war in Syria and stepping up raids against IS suspects. It says it is also moving with the United States in a joint air operation backed by rebel forces on the ground to wrest 98 kilometres (61 miles) of the Syrian border in the hands of jihadists.
