Turkey launches airstrikes in Iraq after deadly Ankara bombing

Ankara – Turkey lashed out Monday at Kurdish targets, bombing military positions in northern Iraq and rounding up dozens of militants in their homes after a suicide car bombing in the heart of the capital. Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said there were “strong indications” that Sunday’s attack was carried out by rebels from the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. Davutoglu added that authorities detained 11 people directly connected to the suicide bombing near two bus stops that killed 37 people. DNA tests were underway to identify the bomber and another body believed to be that of a person who assisted, he said, and a senior government official said the bomber was a woman.
