Got a Big Fish in Turkey

Al Qaeda suspects arrested in Turkey.

Turkey’s state news agency says police have arrested 10 suspected Islamic militants believed to have links to Al Qaeda.

The Anatolian News Agency reports they include a lawyer who has admitted he is the leader of Al Qaeda in Turkey.

The 10 suspects were detained in simultaneous police raids in three cities - Ankara, Istanbul and Ismir - at the start of last month’s visit to Turkey by Pope Benedict.

A report from Turkey’s state-run news agency says the police had been watching the group for a year and acted on information they had bomb-making equipment.

The police are not commenting any further.

The report says police found maps of an oil refinery near Ismir, and seized what they called a CD bomb, thought to explode when played, for the first time.

CNN Turk says the leader is a 25-year-old lawyer and two of the suspects were also members of the Great Islamic Eastern Warriors Front (IBDA-C).

That group claimed joint responsibility with Al Qaeda for two bombings at Istanbul synagogues and attacks on a British consulate and the HSBC bank in November 2003, in which more than 60 people were killed.
