Kurdish militants Thursday claimed a suicide bombing in Ankara that killed 37 people this week and warned of further attacks, while Germany shut down its diplomatic missions and schools in Turkey.The Kurdistan Freedom Hawks (TAK), linked to militants who have waged a three-decade insurgency against Turkey, said they carried out Sunday's bombing and vowed further strikes to avenge military operations in the largely Kurdish southeast. It is the second suicide bombing in a month in the heart of Ankara claimed by TAK, opening a dangerous new phase in Turkey's war with Kurdish militants as deadly attacks spread to its biggest cities well beyond the southeast.Security officials have said the two perpetrators of the Ankara bombing, a man and a woman, were linked to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which launched an armed uprising in southeastern Turkey in 1984 to press for Kurdish autonomy.
