A court in Istanbul Wednesday indicted 46 Daesh suspects for their alleged involvement in the deadly attack on Istanbul's Atatürk International Airport last June, according to a judicial source.
On June 28, 2016, a total of 45 people were killed and more than 200 others injured when three suicide bombers blew themselves up at the international terminal in Istanbul.
The Bakırköy Second High Criminal Court accepted the 262-page indictment demanding aggravated life sentences for the suspects for attempting to overthrow the constitutional order and intentional murder, said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media. The Bakırköy Public Prosecutor's Office, which prepared the indictment, also charged the suspects with being members of an armed terrorist organization, establishing and managing a terror group, plotting intentional murder and damaging property. It separately demanded between 2,132 and 3,342 years of imprisonment for the suspects.
Forty-one suspects in the case are currently in custody, while arrest warrants have been issued for the remaining four.
