A car bomb killed at least 34 people and wounded at least 125 more at a crowded transport hub in the Turkish capital of Ankara Sunday, the second such attack in the administrative heart of the city in less than a month.One senior security official told Reuters initial findings suggested the attack had been carried out by the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) or an affiliated militant group, but there was no immediate claim of responsibility.It killed 29 people, most of them soldiers, and was claimed by a group close to the PKK.The statement was significant because the party is frequently accused of being the armed wing of the PKK – an accusation it denies.
