Kurdish militant PKK may be behind Istanbul attack: Turkey’s Deputy PM

Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus said on Sunday that the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) may be behind the attack that killed 38 people and wounded 166 outside a soccer stadium in Istanbul.

Kurtulmus also said that countries offering messages condemning the bombing should also show solidarity with Turkey’s fight against terrorism.

“The arrows point at the PKK. It is clearly a planned event. There will be an announcement once the investigations are over. We cannot say anything definite for now,” Kurtulmus said.
