Turkey: Kurdish rebels blamed for car bomb attack
Tuesday 21 August 2012
At least seven people were killed and dozens wounded when a car bomb, believed to have been planted by Kurdish separatists, exploded in the south-eastern Turkish city of Gaziantep, near the Syrian border, yesterday.
There was no claim of responsibility but south-eastern Turkey has seen frequent attacks by the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).
The violence is a headache for Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan as he seeks to limit the impact of the conflict in Syria, where the PKK is exerting authority in some border areas.
