Published: Updated:

A massive twin bomb attack in the capital Ankara this month that killed 102 people was ordered by the militant Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group, prosecutors said Wednesday.

"It is understood that a terrorist organization in (the southeastern) Gaziantep province planned attacks inside Turkey after taking direct orders from Daesh in Syria," Ankara prosecutors said in a statement, using an alternative name for the extremist group.
