Turkish spy agency captures bombing suspect in Syria
Turkish intelligence agents in an operation in Syria have captured a man wanted over a deadly 2013 bomb attack and brought him back to Turkey for questioning, Turkey's state-run news agency reported on Wednesday.
Anadolu Agency said Yusuf Nazik, a main suspect in the attack, was captured in Syria's government-controlled Latikia province. He is wanted for allegedly planning and organizing two car bombs that killed 53 people in the town of Reyhanli, near the border with Syria.
Turkey had accused Damascus of being behind the explosions and blamed them on a Turkish Marxist group with alleged links to Syria's intelligence agency.
The bombings came as Turkey sided with Syria's opposition against President Bashar Assad, hosting political opponents and rebel commanders and sheltering Syrian refugees who fled the conflict.
