Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan Friday called on European countries to stop supporting the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), days after a bombing claimed by Kurdish rebels that killed 35 people.Turkish officials say the little-known TAK is a front for PKK attacks on civilian targets, but the PKK, which is embroiled in a bloody conflict with Turkish security forces, claims the TAK is a splinter group over which it has no control.The PKK launched an insurgency against the Turkish state in 1984 for greater autonomy for Kurds, a conflict that has claimed some 40,000 lives and seen it blacklisted as a terror group by Ankara and its Western allies.
