Turkish air force hit Kurdish targets in N. Iraq amid rising Ankara death toll

Nine Turkish air force F-16s and two F-4 jets raided 18 Turkish PKK positions in northern Iraq Sunday night after the death toll from a car bombing attack in central Ankara rose to 37. Police carried out dozens of arrests of suspected rebel Kurdish Workers Party activists.  A  senior Turkish official said the attack is believed to have been carried out by two Kurdish bombers – one of them a woman – but the investigation is continuing.

A Turkish court banned access to Facebook and Twitter after brutal images from Ankara attack were shared on them.
