Turkey: Kurdish PKK militants behind Izmir car bombing, governor says
Kurdish PKK militants were behind a car bombing outside a courthouse that killed two people in the Turkish city of Izmir, a governor said.
Provincial governor Erol Ayyildiz said a “clash erupted” after officers stopped a vehicle at a police checkpoint in front of Bayrakli courthouse.
“In this clash, terrorists detonated the car bomb while trying to escape,” he told reporters.
A police officer and a courthouse employee were killed in the attack, he added.
