From the Jerusalem Post:
[I]t was reported Thursday that Turkish authorities had arrested 32 suspected al-Qaida terrorists who may have been planning attacks on NATO, US and Israeli targets.
According to a report by the state-run agency Anatolian, which was cited by Reuters, the suspects were caught in raids in eight provinces, and security officials believe some trained in al-Qaida camps in Afghanistan.
“Teams from the Istanbul Anti-Terror Squad have launched an operation against al-Qaida members found to be planning operations against US and Israeli representative offices and NATO installations,” Anatolian reported.
The Hurriyet daily said that computers, discs and documents seized in the raids linked the suspects to al-Qaida.
They are down but not yet out.
