PKK Claims Attack on Police in Southeast Turkey that Killed 6: Statement
Thu Jun 9, 2016 16:55:21

The outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) on Thursday claimed a deadly attack that struck a police station in southeast Turkey, killing six people, the group said in a statement.

“A major suicide attack was carried out on the police headquarters of the fascist state forces in Midyat town of Mardin (province) by our comrade,” the PKK said in a statement.

The PKK has yet to claim responsibility for the bombing in Istanbul although the group has carried out similar attacks in major cities across Turkey over the past months.

Four people were also killed earlier on Wednesday in a fresh bombing in the southeastern town of Midyat. More than 30 were also injured in the attack that targeted a police station.
