Latest update : 2010-11-01

Kurdish news agency Firat reported Monday that Turkey's Kurdish separatist organisation, the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), were not responsible for Sunday's suicide bombing in Istanbul which wounded 32 people.

AP - A Kurdish news agency says Kurdish rebels have denied responsibility for the suicide bombing in Istanbul that wounded 32 people, including 15 policemen. 

The Firat news agency said Monday that the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, has declared it was not involved in Sunday’s attack in the city’s main square.
 
Turkey is investigating the attack but has not speculated about who was responsible for it.
 
Kurdish rebels, Islamic militants and leftist extremists have all carried out attacks in Turkey. No other group has claimed responsibility.
 
Firat also reported Monday that the PKK has extended its unilateral cease fire until the summer of 2011, when Turkey will hold a general election. The previous cease fire ended Sunday.
