Twenty suspects have been detained in three Turkish provinces following a car bomb attack in Ankara that killed at least 37 people on March 13.
Eskişehir Gov. Güngöz Azmi Tuna stated that simultaneous operations had been launched in the Central Anatolian province.
“[The suspects] were involved in terrorist propaganda and tried to embrace terrorists. They were involved in various actions … They are mostly from out of town,” Tuna said.
He also stated that “documents relating to illegal organizations” were seized during the raids but refrained from making a direct link between the suspects and the Ankara attack.
Meanwhile, six suspects were detained in the southeastern province of Şanlıurfa. Details of the operation remain unclear.
