DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. October 8, 2016, 11:20 AM (IDT)

A male and a female, suspected of planning to carry out a car bomb attack in the Turkish capital of Ankara, blew themselves up Saturday when police acting on a tip-off demanded their surrender. Ankara police suggested they were likely acting for the Kurdish separatist PKK. A third person is being sought. The pair were hiding at a horse farm outside the capital. Their car flew a Turkish flag and was found to contain plastic explosives and ammonium nitrate.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
