Nine Turkish Citizens Held Over Car Bombs

Nine Turkish citizens have been detained in connection with car bombs that killed 46 people near Turkey's border with Syria.

Turkey's interior minister Muammer Guler said an "organisation which is in close contact to pro-regime groups in Syria" was behind the attacks.

Among the nine people held was the mastermind of the attack and more were expected, Mr Guler said.

"We have determined that some of them were involved in the planning, in the exploration and in the hiding of the vehicles," he added.
