Reyhanli bombing suspects may face aggravated life imprisonment

The 19 suspects of the twin bombings last May in a southern Turkish town on the Syrian border could face 52 aggravated life sentences and 130 22-year terms in prison.

Two powerful bombs went off minutes apart in Reyhanli town on May 11, killing more than 50 people and wounding over 100.

The 115-page indictment prepared by an Adana prosecutor, in southern Turkey, demanding the sentences says the deadly attacks were organized by "the Urgent Ones," a splinter group of the Turkish People's Liberation Party/Front (THKP/C), and Syrian intelligence.

Mihrac Ural, the Urgent Ones' current leader, was personally involved in the attacks.

The indictment seeks 15-years imprisonment for 14 suspects on charges of being members of a terrorist organization.
