A car bomb killed nine people and wounded 64 in the south eastern town of Gaziantep near the Syrian border on Monday. The terrorist organisation PKK said it was not responsible for the attack. However, Samil Tayyar, a former journalist and now an MP from the ruling AKP for Gaziantep, claimed that the bomb attack was carried out together by the PKK and Syrian intelligence. Foreign minister Ahmet Davutoglu said possible Syrian link was being investigated.
