Turkish authorities have detained 11 people who staged demonstrations against the G20 summit being held near the Mediterranean coastal city of Antalya.

The state-run Anadolu Agency said police arrested four protesters who held up placards outside a domestic terminal at Antalya Airport.

The private Dogan news agency said the protesters were members of a left-wing group and held up banners that read: “Murderer US get out of the Middle East.”

Seven more demonstrators were detained in Istanbul after protesting outside the German and British consulates.

The terror attacks in Paris and the war in Syria are expected to loom large at the G20 gathering.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the deadliest attacks in France since the Second World War.
