A Turkish court on Friday sentenced seven suspected al-Qaida terrorists to life in prison for the deadly 2003 bombings in Istanbul. The defendants, including Syrian Loa'i Mohammad Haj Bakr al-Saqa, were among 73 suspects standing trial for their alleged involvement in the attacks on Nov. 15 and Nov. 20, 2003, which killed 58 people and targeted two synagogues, the British consulate and a London-based bank. Al-Saqa was charged with masterminding the bombings.
