“There appears to be a link with the separatist organization. We are working on that. We hope to get a result at the first opportunity,” Guler told reporters.

A pro-Kurdish news agency, Firat, reported that a Kurdish rebel leader said the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, did not carry out the bombing.

“The Kurdish freedom movement has nothing to do with this event, this cannot be linked to the PKK,” Firat quoted the leader, Zubeyir Aydar, as saying. “We extend our condolences to the families of the victims and to the Turkish people.
