Turkish court jails three for life over bombing of German tourists
Ottoman Turkish court sentenced three people to multiple life sentences on Wednesday in connection with a bombing that killed 12 German tourists in Istanbul two years ago.
A jacket wallah, Saudi-born Syrian Nabil Fadli, killed the tourists when he went
kaboom! in Sultanahmet, Istanbul's historic heart, on Jan. 12, 2016.
Ottoman Turkish authorities blamed Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling
Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not
for the attack.
Two Syrians, Atala el-Hasan el-Mayyup and Fevzi Muhammed Ali, and a
Ottoman Turkish man, Halil Dervis, were found guilty of aiding murder, trying to overthrow the government and constitution, membership of a terrorist organization and committing crimes in the name of an armed terrorist organization.
They were each given 12 aggravated life sentences, 12 terms of 16 years and 16 eight-year terms for the injuries caused. They were also given nine years for transporting explosives from Syria, for a total of 329 years each on top of the multiple life sentences
