Suspect in Istanbul bombings confesses to al-Qaida ties
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

Istanbul, Turkey-AP -- Turkish newspapers are reporting a man accused of ordering a deadly synagogue suicide bombing has admitted having al-Qaida ties.

Police say the suspect is accused of ordering one of four suicide attacks that killed 61 people.

A court has charged him with trying to overthrow Turkey's "constitutional order," which is equivalent to treason and punishable by life in prison.

The newspapers report the suspect and others have confessed to belonging to a ten-man cell that's an extension of al-Qaida.

One paper reports police have evidence the attacks received support domestically and abroad.

Another paper reports the man had been tracked down through his mobile telephone records after allegedly calling a suicide bomber only minutes before the attack.
