The terror organization PKK is responsible for July's twin bomb attack in Istanbul, according to the indictment prepared by prosecutors, CNNTurk reported on Wednesday. (UPDATED)

Seventeen people were killed and more than 150 others were injured in July in the deadliest attack against civilians in Turkey in almost five years, when two bombs exploded minutes apart in a packed Istanbul square.

 

Nine suspects are included in the indictment, Turkish news agencies reported.

 

Two of the suspects risk life sentences without parole for carrying out the attacks, Anatolian Agency said, adding the remaining seven defendants risk lesser jail terms on charges of possessing explosives and belonging to the PKK.

 

It was not immediately clear when the trial will begin.

 

The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey as well as the most of the international community, including the United States and the European Union.
