ISTANBUL - Turkish security forces have foiled 18 suicide attacks since the start of the year, three of them by intercepting vehicles laden with explosives, Interior Minister Efkan Ala said in an interview with the Kanal 7 television station on Sunday.

Ala said that one of the three vehicles had been found this week at Istanbul's Bogazici University, parts of which were evacuated on Thursday in an apparent bomb scare.

A car laden with explosives was detonated in the capital Ankara this month next to military buses waiting at traffic lights in the administrative heart of the capital, killing 29 people, most of them soldiers.
