Five people were arrested in Bulgaria. They are accused of aiding and abetting the attack in Istanbul.

Less than a week after the attack in the Turkish capital Istanbul, five people were arrested in Bulgaria. They are accused of “assisting the probable perpetrator of a terrorist act” in the six deaths, Bulgarian Prosecutor General Sijka Milewa, a spokeswoman, told state radio in Sofia on Saturday. On Friday, a Turkish court ordered the remand of 17 previously arrested people – including Ahlam A.*, the main suspect.

On November 13, an attack on a busy Istanbul shopping street killed six people and injured more than 80. Turkey blames the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia and the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK). Both groups denied this. The main suspect, Ahlam A., is a citizen of Syria, according to Turkish police. She claimed responsibility for the attack, police said.
