A court in Turkey has ordered the detention of 17 suspects in connection with a deadly explosion on a street in Istanbul, charging them with threats to national unity, premeditated murder and attempted murder.
The AR agency writes about it.
The court released three more suspects from pre-trial detention. He also ordered the deportation from Turkey of 29 people detained by the police in connection with the incident.
Six people, including two children, were killed in an explosion on November 13 on Istanbul's busy Istiklal Avenue, a popular street lined with shops and restaurants. More than 80 people were injured.
The attack was a shocking reminder of the bombings in Turkish cities between 2015 and 2017 that undermined the public's sense of security.
Turkish authorities have blamed the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, and affiliated Syrian Kurdish groups for the blast last weekend. Kurdish groups deny involvement.
The prosecutor's office interrogated the main suspect in the terrorist attack, a Syrian woman who is accused of leaving a TNT bomb on Istiklal Street around five o'clock.
