Bomber of Ankara Terror Attack Identified

One of the suicide bombers who blew themselves up outside Ankara’s main train station on Oct. 10, killing 102 people, has been identified, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Monday.
Davutoglu said investigations to identify the second attacker were continuing. The prime minister made the comments on private news channel, A Haber.
The blasts have shaken Turkey as the country faces a general election re-run on Nov. 1, while counterterrorism operations continue in the southeast and an ongoing civil war rages along its southern border in Syria, Daily Sabah reported.
The prime minister also touched upon the recent shooting down of a drone by Turkish warplanes, when the drone entered Turkish airspace near Syria on Friday.
Davutoglu said the drone was Russian-made, but Moscow has told Ankara the unmanned aircraft did not belong to Russia.
The prime minister said the drone may have belonged to the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, the Kurdish PYD militia, or other forces. He added that the downing of the drone had a deterrent effect and hoped Russia would show a more careful stance after earlier airspace incursions.
