A police officer was martyred in Istanbul late Sunday after being stabbed by a Daesh suspect, Anadolu reported.

Anadolu Agency says Saturday that police conducted simultaneous operations in the southeastern provinces of Sanliurfa and Gaziantep as well as eastern Malatya province. Turkey's official news agency says a man suspected of being a suicide bomber for the Islamic State group has stabbed and killed a police officer while in custody.

The suspect was being taken to Istanbul's main police station at around 11pm local time, escorted by two officers, when he stabbed one of them, police said.

It was not immediately clear how the suspect managed to hide the knife during the arrest.
