ANKARA Dec 17 The materials used in a car bomb
attack on a bus carrying off-duty military personnel in the
central Turkish city of Kayseri on Saturday were similar to
those used in a twin bombing last week in Istanbul, Deputy Prime
Minister Numan Kurtulmus said.
Kurtulmus made the comment in an interview with broadcaster
NTV. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack,
which killed 13 and wounded 55, but President Tayyip Erdogan has
blamed Kurdish militants for it.
