A Turkish court on Monday charged a ninth man on suspicion of instigating the crime of murdering three Christians in the country's east in 2007.

Seven young men are already standing trial for the killing of German missionary Tilmann Geske and Turkish converts Necati Aydin and Ugur Yuksel in the offices of a Christian publishing house in the eastern city of Malatya in April 2007. 

The latest suspect, Huseyin Yelki, was jailed pending trial Monday after Aral implicated him in his testimony, the Anatolian Agency reported.

Yelki had previously appeared in court as a witness and said that he was working part-time at the publishing house when he saw one of the defendants entering the offices.

The prosecutor at the time had raised the question that he might have acted as an informant for the defendants.

All the victims were members of the tiny Protestant community in Malatya.

In the trial that began in November 2007, the prosecutor charged that the defendants set up an "armed terrorist organization to forcefully impose their ideological convictions on others".

He has demanded life imprisonment for the five. The two other suspects face at least a year in jail for aiding the killers.
