The number of suspects Turkish police are seeking in the Ankara terror bombings which killed 102 and left hundreds more wounded has risen to 14 as the Ankara Court of Peace has issued arrest warrants for four more suspects on Tuesday.
Previously, upon the order of the Ankara Public Prosecutor's Office, arrest warrants had been issued for the following nine suspects: Yunus Durmaz, Halil İbrahim Durgun, Hasan Hüseyin Uğur, Abdülmuttalip Demir, Burak Ormanoğlu, Metin Akaltın, Mehmet Kadir Cebeal, Deniz Büyükçelebi and Hacı Ali Durmaz.
Later last week, the court had issued one more arrest warrant for another suspect, bringing the total number of those being sought for to ten.
On October 20, the Ankara Public Prosecutor's Office confirmed in a statement that one of the suicide bombers in the twin Ankara bombings was identified as an ISIS-linked terrorist named Yunus Emre Alagöz, while the efforts to find the second suspect are still ongoing.
The DNA tests also revealed that Alagöz was the brother of Şeyh Abdurrahman Alagöz, the suicide bomber who carried out the deadly Suruç bombing that killed 33 people and wounded more than 100 on July 20.
A police sketch for the second perpetrator has been published. While police could not identify the second perpetrator since his DNA did not match any of the samples collected, he is assumed to be from Turkey's southern neighbors. The suspect is believed to speak Arabic and to be around 170 cm high and in his 30s.
The suicide bombings in Ankara – the deadliest attack in modern Turkish history – were set off by two suspected suicide attackers in a crowd of leftist, pro-Kurdish and union activists at a peace rally. The attacks near Ankara's main train station left the bodies of dead demonstrators strewn across the ground.
