A Turkish prosecutor has charged nine people over two deadly bomb blasts in Istanbul in July that claimed 17 lives and were blamed on separatist Kurdish rebels, Anatolia news agency reported Wednesday. Two of the suspects, alleged members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), risk life sentences without parole for carrying out the attacks in a crowded street in the district of Gungoren, Anatolia said. The remaining seven defendants risk lesser jail terms on charges of possessing explosives and belonging to the PKK, the report said. It was not immediately clear when the trial will begin.
