SHOCKER: Istanbul Suicide Bomber Was a Syrian 'Refugee'

 The suicide bomber who killed 10 people in Istanbul registered as a refugee in Turkey just one week before the attack after entering the country from Syria, according to Turkish media.

The bomber, identified as Nabil Fadli, a 28-year-old Saudi-born Syrian national, gave his fingerprints at an immigration centre in Istanbul on January 5 and was allowed to move freely in the days before the bombing.

He was not on Turkey's watch list of suspected militants and no other countries passed on warnings about him, the Turkish government said.

The disclosure raises questions for the Turkish security services and comes as Turkey arrested 68 people in a widespread round-up of suspected Isil members.

Only one person was arrested in direct connection with Tuesday's attack, which killed 10 German tourists and wounded another 15 people.
