AA photoA long-sought suspect was detained in the southeastern province of Gaziantep on April 6 over his alleged involvement in the deadly Ankara bombing on Oct. 10, 2015.
One of the perpetrators of the attack with links to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), Hüseyin Tunç, was captured in an operation in the Şahinbey district.
According to allegations, Tunç took suicide bombers from the Syrian border and brought them to Gaziantep while also carrying explosives used in the attack. Tunç also allegedly had links with the so-called amir of the jihadist group, Yunus Durmaz.
Meanwhile, the Ankara Public Prosecutor’s Office demanded Tunç be brought to Ankara in connection with his alleged role in the Oct. 10 blast.
The deadly double blasts ahead of a peace rally in Ankara killed 103 people and wounded hundreds.
