Ankara- A would-be suicide bomber failed to blow up former Justice Minister Hikmet Sami Turk in an attempted assassination attempt in Ankara on Wednesday, the Anadolu news agency reported. The woman, Didem Akman, was arrested at the Bilkent University after a detonator failed to trigger explosives she had strapped to her body.
"There was an explosion one metre behind me," Turk said. "My bodyguards subdued the attacker."
A second suspected suicide bomber was later arrested outside the university.
