    Turkish President said that three organizers of the terrorist act in Ankara on February 17 that killed 28 and injured another 81 are among the 14 who were detained earlier.

    ANKARA (Sputnik) Three organizers of the terrorist act in Ankara on February 17 that killed 28 and injured another 81 are among the 14 who were detained earlier, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Friday.

    “As of today there are 14 people detained and this number will increase, but there are three main executors who played an active role in the organization of this terrorist act who moved between Diyabakir, Ankara, and Istanbul. From the evidence we have on hand it is completely clear that this terrorist act was organized by Syrian-Kurd self-defense forces and the PYD [Kurdish Democratic Union]. We have no doubts in this,” Ergodan told journalists.
