Terror Suspects Detained in Turkey

From the Jerusalem Post:
Turkish police detained more than 10 people Wednesday suspected of preparing an attack on Israeli tourists, including one who they believe was tied to the 2003 Istanbul blasts that left some 60 people dead, private NTV television said.
Since Friday, more than 5,000 Israelis on five separate cruise ships have been turned away from Turkish ports due to intelligence that an al-Qaida-linked attack was imminent, and the Israeli government has warned its citizens not to travel to a defined strip of coastline along the Turkish Mediterranean.

Update: There are conflicting reports regarding the accuracy of this story.
