Turkey: Bomb attacks condemned


Turkey: Bomb attacks condemned

Amnesty International condemns in the strongest terms the 15 November bombings of Neve Shalom and Beth Israel synagogues in Istanbul and the further bombings today apparently targeting the British Consulate and the HSBC Bank headquarters in Istanbul. Twenty-five people died and many others were injured in the bomb attacks on the two synagogues and today's bombings have resulted in dozens of deaths and multiple injuries.

"The deliberate killing of civilians has no justification and violates fundamental principles of international law," Amnesty International stressed.

Governments have a duty to bring to justice people within their jurisdiction who order and facilitate bombings. In doing so they must act strictly in accordance with international human rights standards.
