Turkish security forces detained 23 people in an operation Wednesday against suspected al-Qaida militants, a news agency reported. The operation took place in the northwestern province of Bursa, 90 kilometers (56 miles) south of Istanbul, the Anatolia agency reported. Anatolia did not cite a source, nor did it provide further detail on the operation. The governor's office in Bursa had no immediate comment. Suicide bombers linked to al-Qaida hit Istanbul, Turkey's largest city, in 2003. The attacks targeted two synagogues, the British Consulate and a British bank, killing 58 people. In February, a court sentenced seven people to life in prison for the bombings.
