ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday he believed Islamic State, Kurdish militants, and the Syrian "mukhabarat" secret police had all played a role in a double suicide bombing which killed more than 100 people in Ankara this month.

Turkish authorities have identified one of the two bombers as Yunus Emre Alagoz, the state-run Anadolu Agency said on Monday. Alagoz is believed to have been a member of a home-grown Islamic State cell in the southeastern town of Adiyaman, officials have said.
