Бомба срещу автобус на турската полиция е ранила най-малко 15 души, съобщава Анадолската новинарска агенция. Все още никой не е поел отговорност за атаката, макар новините, че кюрдските бунтовници са възстановили дейността си, след като преди дни прекратиха едностранно примирието с Турция.
Лидерът на кюрското движение Абдулах Юджелан заяви, че няма да търси спогодба с турските сили.

ISTANBUL — A bomb attack on a police vehicle in Istanbul lightly injured 15 people on Tuesday, Turkish police and news reports said.
The roadside bomb went off in the Kucukcekmece district, on the outskirts of the city, as the vehicle was passing. Police officers in the vehicle and a number of passers-by were injured.
Istanbul police chief Huseyin Capkin told the state-run Anatolia news agency that none of the injuries was serious. He said police were investigating whether the bomb was exploded by remote control.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but Kurdish rebels who have carried out similar attacks on police in the past have recently intensified their activities. Kurdish rebel chief Abdullah Ocalan said last week he had abandoned efforts to seek dialogue with Turkey.
Radical leftist and Islamic groups also operate in the city.
“There is no information on the culprits for now. We will work to find them,” Capkin said.
