Kurdish Rebels Claim Attack |

Sebnem Arsu of the New York Times reports that the PKK has claimed responsibility for the recent attack on a convoy in which Prime Minister Erdoğan had traveled moments earlier:
Kurdish separatists claimed responsibility on Thursday for the attack on the prime minister’s campaign convoy the day before, the semi-official Anatolian News Agency reported. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan was not travelling with the convoy when it was attacked by a group of five or six gunmen, reported to be members of the rebel Kurdistan Workers Party, near Kastamonu, a Black Sea port. One policeman was killed. The governor of Kastamonu, Erdogan Bektas, said the attack was not an attempt on the prime minister’s life but simply aimed at stirring chaos.
