Turkish security forces have found sketches of the United States consulate in Istanbul along with explosives during a raid against suspected terrorists, according to media reports.

According to the reports, 11 alleged members of al Qaeda were arrested in a counter-terror operation on Wednesday in Istanbul and the northwestern city of Tekirdag after they allegedly planned to stage terrorist attacks on targets in Istanbul, including the U.S. Consulate, a synagogue and a church, ABC News reports.

Along with the consulate's sketches, 25 kg of explosives and several firearms were recovered and confiscated during the raid, the report added. (ANI)
