Russia on Tuesday said it had "serious doubts" about the goal of a Dutch inquiry into the downing of a Malaysia Airline plane over rebel-held eastern Ukraine last year. The Russian foreign ministry reeled off a litany of perceived problems with the Dutch-led investigation, saying the work on it should continue. "There remain serious doubts whether the genuine goal of an investigation conducted in the Netherlands is the establishment of true reasons behind the catastrophe and not a justification of accusations that have been put forward in advance," a foreign ministry spokeswoman said.
By Humeyra Pamuk and Orhan Coskun ISTANBUL/ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish investigators believe an Islamic State cell from the southeastern town of Adiyaman, thought to have been behind previous attacks in the country, may have carried out a double suicide bombing that killed 97 people in the capital Ankara. Turkey’s Human Rights Association said several families from the town had approached authorities in recent years expressing concern their sons could have left to join Islamic State in Syria. Two bombs exploded seconds apart on Saturday, targeting a rally of pro-Kurdish activists and civic groups near Ankara's main train station, three weeks ahead of a general election.
