Turkey confirms IS behind Ankara bombings

Ankara, Oct 28 (IANS) Turkey on Wednesday confirmed that the IS was behind the twin suicide bombings in the capital Ankara earlier in October that killed 102 people.

An Islamic State (IS) cell received orders from its group in Syria and planned attacks in Turkey, Xinhua cited the Ankara prosecutor’s office as saying.

The group was also behind the Suruc bombing in July, as well as the attacks on the People’s Democratic Party (HDP) headquarters in Mersin and Adana provinces in southern Turkey and an HDP rally in Diyarbakir city before the June 7 elections, the office said.
