Turkish officials arrest al-Qaida suspects
by UPI

ISTANBUL, Turkey -- Turkish officials arrested 45 alleged al-Qaida suspects in Istanbul in an alleged plot to attack Turkey and its national interests, security sources said.

Security officials said in a press statement Turkish anti-terror police rounded up the suspects up in several simultaneous raids in several areas of Istanbul, the official Kuwaiti news agency reported.

A gunfight erupted in January when Turkish officials raided several al-Qaida hideouts, killing four suspects and a police officer.

Attacks on the British consulate and the HSBC bank in Istanbul, as well as two synagogues, killed 63 people on Nov. 15, 2003.
