Turkey detains eight allegedly linked to Kurdish rebels following Istanbul bombings
Turkish police have arrested for questioning eight people with alleged links to Kurdish rebels following bomb attacks against two small hotels in Istanbul and a liquefied petroleum gas plant, police officials said Wednesday.
A previously unknown Kurdish group claimed responsibility
for the pre-dawn bomb attacks Tuesday that killed two
people and wounded 11 others.
An al-Qaeda-linked group also claimed responsibility in a statement posted on a Web site, but Turkish authorities cast doubt on that claim, saying Kurdish separatists were suspected. (Albawaba.com)
