New suspect charged over Christian murders

News - Europe: New suspect charged over Christian murders
A Turkish court on Tuesday charged a new suspect over the 2007 murders of three Christians in the country's east on suspicion that he instigated the crime, the Anatolia news agency reported.

Seven young men are already on trial over 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 city of Malatya in April 2007.

The new suspect, Varol Bulent Aral, was charged with "being the leader of a terrorist organisation" and "the murder of more than one person as part of the organisation's activities" after he was named by a defendant as the instigator.
