ANKARA (Reuters) - The militant Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) has claimed responsibility for the bombing of an Istanbul police station on Monday in which four people died.

In a statement released on one of its websites on Tuesday, the PKK named three of its militants who died in the attack and during a subsequent firefight with Turkish security forces.
