    Government officials told the AFP that they suspect the Kurdish Workers Party or PKK carried out the attack.

    The PKK, listed as a terrorist group by Ankara and much of the international community, took up arms for Kurdish self-rule in the southeast in 1984, sparking a conflict that has claimed more than 40,000 lives.
