Fifteen people held over suicide bomb in Turkey

ISTANBUL – Turkish police have detained 15 people over a suicide bombing in the northwestern city of Bursa where a woman injured eight bystanders as she blew herself up near the city’s main mosque, Turkish media said on Thursday. The TRT and CNN Turk television stations quoted Interior Minister Efkan Ala as giving the total and saying evidence pointed to a link with a militant group, but gave no details. The attack on Wednesday was the fifth suicide bombing in a major urban centre in Turkey this year. “Fifteen people have been detained in connection with the Bursa attack. There are strong indications that it is related to a group,” the broadcasters quoted Ala as saying.
