A terror attack against israeli tourists were prevented in the southern Turkish port of Alanya.
"I have no regrets. I was going to attack Israeli ships. If they come, my friends will attack them," the man shouted. The semiofficial Anatolia news agency identified him only by the initials L.S.
"I had prepared a ton of explosives," he said in a barely audible voice.
The man also shouted "Allah Akbar," Arabic for "God is great," before officials pulled him back and closed the window. He spoke Turkish with an Arabic accent.
Defense lawyer Osman Kara said authorities caught his client with 750 kilograms (1,650 pounds) of explosives, CNN-Turk television reported.
"He was planning to hit Israeli ships in international waters with these explosives," CNN-Turk quoted Kara as saying.
