The Guardian is reporting that 13 people, including 10 Turks, have been charged in connection with the Istanbul airport suicide bombings. Officials believe that ISIS is responsible for Tuesday’s gun and bomb attacks at Ataturk airport, which unfortunately, has left 45 people dead.
The suspects were charged with belonging to a terror group, homicide, and endangering the unity of the state, as reported by the Dogan news agency, and Akhmed Chatayev has been identified as the organizer of the attacks.
According to The Guardian, he is the Chechen leader of an Isis cell in Istanbul who allegedly found accommodation for the bombers. It is also alleged that Chatayev also organized two deadly bombings in the heart of Istanbul earlier this year.
To date, 29 people have been arrested over the attacks and so far only 13 could be held accountable for the 45 deaths. The other 49 people who were injured are still being treated for their injuries, so keep them all in your prayers!
