Twelve of the 32 were released pending trial.
On May 11, a car bomb exploded outside Reyhanlı City Hall and another went off outside a post office. Fifty-three people were killed and as many as 100 were injured in the bombings. Reyhanlı is a main hub for Syrian refugees and activity for those fighting in opposition to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime.Güncelleme Tarihi: 24 Ağustos 2013, 13:43
