At least 26 people were killed and more than 450 wounded Thursday as two trucks packed with explosives blew up outside the British consulate in Istanbul, Turkey and the headquarters of the London-based HSBC bank.
A man calling the semi-official Anatolia news agency claimed that Al Qaeda and the Great Eastern Raiders' Front, or IBDA-C, a Turkish Islamic militant group, jointly claimed responsibility for attacks.
Among the dead was British Consul-General Roger Short, the Anatolia news agency quoted U.S. Ambassador Eric Edelmankey as saying. An embassy chaplain also told the BBC that Short had died.
We’ll examine the Al Qaeda connection with Mansoor Ijaz, FOX News foreign affairs analyst.
Plus, we’ll get congressional reaction from Rep. John Sweeney, R-N.Y., and Vic Snyder, D-Ark.
Michael Jackson’s representatives say he will surrender to Santa Barbara authorities in response to this warrant for his arrest.
We’ll examine the charges against Jackson with Jane Velez-Mitchell, correspondent for Celebrity Justice.
Plus, we’ll investigate what makes the King of Pop tick with Uri Geller (search), friend of Jackson.
