Police in Turkey detain 29 in operation targeting al Qaeda

Police in Turkey detained 29 people in an operation targeting the al Qaeda terror network, Turkey's semi-official Anatolian news agency reported on Friday, citing authorities. The operation, organized by police in Adana two months ago, detained the people in the provinces of Adana, Istanbul, Antalya, and Canakkale and brought them to Adana.

Special operations police were searching for two more people.

Suspects brought to police headquarters in Adana shouted "Allahu Akbar," "they are accusing us because we are Muslims" and "infidels." During searches of houses and offices, police found a gun, documents, CDs, DVDs,  computers and hard discs

    Great work by Adana 😉 And them suspects are truly idiots for accusing the Turkish police in Adana which are Muslim.

    I hope Turkey is very diligent in sweeping for Mossad agents thru-out Turkey that are intent on assassination and disruption of the existing Turkish leadership and government. If found, Turkey should turn them over to Iran to be dealt with!
