46 people were arrested after the attack which hit the center of Istanbul yesterday afternoon, Sunday 13 November. At least 6 people died, 81 others were injured in the explosion that took place in the shopping streets of the Turkish city. Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu accused the PKK (Kurdistan Workers’ Party) of being the source of the matrix of the attack. For its part, the party denies any accusation: “We offer our condolences to the relatives of the victims – they say in a press release given to ANFNEWS – and we wish a speedy recovery to the injured. We have nothing to do with what happened, it is well known in public opinion that we would never target civilians. We are a movement leading a just and legitimate struggle for freedom. Targeting the population is out of the question. »
