Ankara blasts: 11 suspects sent to court
Eleven people detained over the twin suicide bombings that hit Ankara on Oct. 10, were sent to court on Sunday, according to judicial sources, Anadolu Agency reported.
The twin suicide bombings in the Turkish capital last Saturday claimed 102 lives and injured hundreds at a peace rally.
Eleven people, who were detained as part of the investigation launched after the attack, were brought to the Ankara courthouse by anti-terror teams Sunday morning. A large number of policemen were deployed inside and outside the courthouse.
Public prosecutors will hear the suspects.
Fourteen people had been taken into custody as part of the investigation. Three suspects, who were detained due to suspicious posts on Twitter, have been released, the judicial source told Anadolu Agency.
The blasts have shaken Turkey as the country faces a general election re-run on Nov. 1, while counter-terrorism operations continue in the southeast and an ongoing civil war rages on along its southern border in Syria.
