Turkey implicated in attack on Cypriot official in Tehran: press

TEHRAN, May 18 (AFP) -Police investigations have linked the Turkish secret services to a bomb attack on Monday against a leading Greek-Cypriot official visiting Tehran, a newspaper reported here Tuesday.

The bomb exploded just as the speaker of the Cyprus parliament Spyros Kyprianou entered the grounds of the Cypriot embassy here, the hardline daily Jomhuri Islami said.

The bomb caused damage but no one was hurt, the paper said, adding that several people had been arrested.

One of those detained had confessed to having "links with the Turkish secret services," it said.
