TEHRAN, YJC. -- Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accused Damascus of trying to drag his country into the Syrian "quagmire" after twin bomb attacks killed 46 people in a town on the border
Turkey said Sunday it had arrested nine people over the twin car bombings that sowed death in Reyhanli the previous day, but the Syrian government denied any involvement.
Ankara said it was holding suspects who had confessed and accused Damascus of trying to drag Turkey into its civil war.
"They want to drag us down a vile path," Erdogan said at a rally in Istanbul, urging Turks to be "level-headed in the face of each provocation aimed at drawing Turkey into the Syrian quagmire".
