Security forces in Turkey reportedly foiled an assassination attempt against President Obama.

A Saudi Arabian newspaper reports a man was arrested Friday and admitted to the plot.

He was wearing a press credential from the TV network Al Jazeera, which denies the man is an employee.

The man allegedly said three others were in on the plot when he confessed to authorities.

He was carrying a knife when taken into custody.
