The suicide bomber who killed 10 tourists in Istanbul’s historic Sultanahmet Square has been identified as a Saudi national. He had recently applied for asylum in Turkey at a local migration management office.

The ISIL bomber, identified as 28-year-old Nabil Fadli, applied for asylum at the Zeytinburnu Migration Management Directorate in the Istanbul district on 5th January, security sources said.

Reports say that the man arrived at the centre along with four other men and remained at his registered address for several days.

Fadli’s identity was uncovered after crime scene investigators found one of his fingertips at the site of the explosion.

Police are continuing an extensive investigation to apprehend Fadli’s accomplices, as well as the men who accompanied him on 5th January.
