Turkish Report: Syrian Refugee Responsible for Ankara Car Bomb
Turkish media reports say a Syrian national was behind the attack in Ankara that killed at least 28 people and wounded dozens of others.
Yeni Safak, a newspaper close to the government, said Thursday that the man who detonated the car bomb Wednesday that targeted buses carrying military personnel was identified from his fingerprints. It said he had been registered as a refugee in Turkey.
It said the car used in the attack, carried out near Turkey’s military headquarters, parliament and other government buildings, had been rented out in the western Turkish city of Izmir around two weeks ago.
Pro-government Sabah newspaper said the man was linked to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK.
A government official couldn’t confirm the reports.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility although suspicion fell on the PKK or ISIS
