Married man in Burqa goes to meet lover, gets detained

Istanbul: A Turkish man detained as a suspected would-be suicide bomber in northern Turkey was actually wearing a burqa to disguise himself to meet a secret lover from a dating site, local media reported on Sunday.

Locals in the Black Sea province of Ordu alerted police of a would-be suicide bomber on Saturday after noticing that a burqa-clad woman talking on the phone at a bus stop was wearing men's shoes, a news agency said.

A police team arrived at the scene and unmasked the man, who was dressed in a full-length, Islamic-style black robe with a niqab -- the head covering worn by many Muslim women -- covering his face.

Authorities detained him for inflicting fear and panic in the public, an agency reported.

The 33-year-old man, who is married with two children, told police that he had resorted to the burqa disguise in order to secretly meet a woman he had met on an online dating site for the first time.

Turkey is on high alert after a series of deadly attacks blamed on the Islamic State (IS) jihadist group, including a massive twin suicide bombing at a peace rally in Ankara on October 10 that killed 102 people in the worst-ever terror attack in Turkey's history.
