Turkey premier points finger at Kurdish militants for Ankara blast

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu implies the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) is behind the car bombing in Ankara which killed 37 people.

The premier, according to the state-run Andolu news agency, blames a "separatist terrorist organization," which is a phrase often used by Turkey to describe the PKK, noting that investigations, including DNA tests, were still ongoing to be certain.

At least one of those killed was the attacker while a second body is unclear.

Turkey has arrested 11 people since the bombing, he says, without going into detail.
