Turkish police detain 3 for blast bomb plot in Izmir

Police in Turkey's western port city of Izmir detained three people for allegedly plotting to set off blast bombs in anti-government demonstrations that started last week by a group of protesters against a development project at Istanbul's popular Taksim Square and spread nationwide.

Police impounded eight such devices and materials for making the explosives, authorities said. 

The protests which started in reaction to a construction project in Taksim, Istanbul turned into nation-wide demonstrations against the AK Party Government on June 1 and 2.
