Turkish man arrested for allegedly plotting to kill rabbis

A man was arrested by Turkish security forces Friday for allegedly plotting to kill rabbis in Istanbul, AFP cited from an earlier report by Turkish newspaper Milliyet.
The individual, Ismet Rencber, had been tracked after mailing a threatening anonymous letter to the main synagogue in Istanbul and was stopped by security forces upon his arrival at a relative's home in the city's suburbs.
Rencber, a mason from the city of Kars in eastern Turkey, denied that he intended to kill any Jews, but told investigators that he "hated Jews."
