Six people were murdered in Turkey’s blast; the bombing suspect was captured hours later; the minister blames the PKK.

According to AFP, Suleyman Soylu, Turkey’s interior minister, blamed the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) for the bombing.
A bombing suspect has been detained hours after an explosion in a busy Istanbul Street killed at least six people. According to the state-run Anadolu media, Suleyman Soylu, Turkey’s interior minister, said on Monday that the explosive is thought to have been planted by the individual.
The bombing was attributed by Soylu to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).According to our research, the PKK terrorist organization is to blame, he said, according to AFP.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan had earlier expressed concern that the bombing “smells like terrorism.” He and the nation’s vice president, Faut Oktay, also asserted that a “woman” bomber was responsible for the attack.
In the incident that occurred on Sunday, an explosion rocked the popular pedestrian street and caused six deaths and 81 injuries.
Video footage that surfaced online shortly after the blast showed hundreds of people fleeing the road as black smoke engulfed the area as ambulances and police rushed to the scene. As usual, the area was crowded with tourists, families, and shoppers.
As others fled the scene after the explosion, parents grabbed their children’s arms as they left, leaving a number of individuals laying on the ground.
Authorities later disclosed that a Turkish government ministry worker and his daughter were two of the fatalities. According to news agency Reuters, five injured people were sent to a hospital’s intensive care unit, with two of them being in a severe condition.
At a news conference, Erdogan declared that attempts to “destroy Turkey and the Turkish people through terrorism will fail today just as they did yesterday and as they will tomorrow.”
He was cited by Reuters as saying, “Our people can be certain that the criminals… will be punished as they deserve.”
Bekir Bozdag, Turkey’s justice minister, was quoted by Anadolu as stating that a woman had waited on a bench in the street for more than 40 minutes before departing moments This indicates that the device was either timed to go off or was distantly detonated before the explosion.
