Turkey targeting IS for twin bombing culprits

Turkey is targeting Islamic State in its investigation of Saturday’s twin suicide bombings in Ankara.
Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu’s office said that work is continuing with identifying the two dead male suicide bombers at the railway station.
Although the Turkish authorities have listed several terrorist groups as probable culprits, local media reported that investigators are now focusing more efforts on the Islamic State or IS as key suspects.
A missing brother from July’s attack in Turkey’s southeastern town of Suruc was named as a suspect of the Ankara bombings. Both brothers reportedly joined the IS in 2014.
Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization former deputy head Cevat Ones said the attack is almost certainly linked to radical Islamist groups operating in the Middle East.
