    Ankara car bomb blast kills 34; Turkey condemns 'terror attack'





    (CNN) A car bomb explosion ripped through a busy square in the Turkish capital Sunday evening, killing at least 34 people and wounding 125 others, officials said.

    The death toll could include one or two attackers, Health Minister Mehmet Muezzinoglu said.

    "We condemn this terror attack and we say again, people who carried out this attack will never succeed," Interior Minister Efkan Ala said.

    Last week, the U.S. Embassy in Ankara warned of a possible terrorist plot to strike government buildings in the capital's Bahcelievler neighborhood, which is just a few minute's drive from the square where Sunday's explosion occurred.

    Ankara bombers were PKK members, had links with the group: security sources

    Two members of the PKK terrorist organization are the suspected perpetrators of a car bombing that killed 37 people in the Turkish capital Ankara, security officials said on Monday.

    Evidence has been obtained that one of the bombers (named Seher Çağla Demir) was a female member of the PKK who joined the militant group in 2013, the security officials stated. She was born in 1992 and from the eastern Turkish city of Kars, they said.

    The other suspected bomber was a male Turkish citizen with links to the PKK, the security official said.

    There has not been any claim of responsibility for the bombing and the government has said it will identify who was behind the attack once investigations are completed.

    We knew it was PKK or its affiliates, some people tried to play games and act like it was not.


    "On the evening of March 13, a suicide attack was carried out ... in the streets of the capital of the fascist Turkish republic. We claim this attack," TAK said in a statement on their website, warning that it would stage more attacks.
