Kurdish underground carried out Ankara bombing, Turkish PM says

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Thursday morning that the Syria-based Kurdish YPG militia was responsible for the deadly bombing in Ankara the previous day in which 28 people were killed and dozens were wounded. He said nine people had been arrested on suspicion of helping carry out the attack and are now being investigated by the security forces. "The attack in Ankara was carried out by the PKK using a person who infiltrated into Turkey from Syria," the prime minister said in a speech. About an hour later, a Turkish military convoy was struck by a powerful roadside bomb detonated by remote control, leaving at least eight people dead.
