AFTER THE WAR | IN BRIEF / TURKEY

Four Bombs Explode in Southern City

May 05, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

Four bombs exploded in the southern Turkish city of Adana, shattering the windows of several shops and homes. Police said no one was injured.

One of the bombs went off on a street behind the U.S. consulate, but authorities do not believe the consulate was the target.

Adana is a few miles from the air base of Incirlik, where 1,400 U.S. soldiers are stationed. U.S. interests have been attacked in Turkey in the past, and anti-American sentiment grew during the U.S.-led war on Iraq.
