ANKARA, May 31 (Xinhua) -- Turkey deported 12 Finnish nationals over their links to terrorism, Turkish Interior Ministry announced on Sunday.


In a statement, the ministry said the fighters were sent back as part of Ankara's efforts to "expel foreign terrorists."


Turkey continues to send back foreign "terrorist" fighters, it added.


Ankara says that although several European countries have resisted its efforts to send IS members back to their countries, it will press forward.


Turkey has so far deported at least 7,500 IS members.
