Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan says Turkey will not fall for a "dirty scenario" and be dragged into the conflict with Syria.

Erdogan was speaking Sunday, a day after two car bombings in a town near the Syrian border killed 46 people and raised fears that Turkey may be drawn into the conflict.

Erdogan says "we have to maintain our extreme cool-bloodedness in the face of efforts and provocations to drag us into the bloody quagmire in Syria."

He say that "those who attack Turkey will be held to account sooner or later."

Officials say that nine Turkish citizens believed to be link to the Syrian intelligence agency have been detained in connection with the bombings.
