Material used in bomb attack in Kayseri is similar to Istanbul attacks: Deputy PM
ANKARAThe materials used in a car bomb attack on a bus carrying off-duty military personnel in the central Turkish city of Kayseri on Dec.17 were similar to those used in a twin bombing last week in Istanbul, Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmuş said.
Kurtulmus made the comment in an interview with broadcaster NTV.
All signs so far indicate that the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) was behind a deadly bombing on a bus carrying Turkish soldiers that left at least 13 dead and dozens wounded, Kurtulmuş said.
"All indications at present point to the PKK. We have to take into account all possibilities but the signs at present point to the PKK," he added.
