Turkey: Istanbul stadium attacks: has ISIS signature but Turkey points finger at PKK -

The Turkish government says Kurdish militants appear to be responsible for twin bomb attacks on police outside a stadium in Istanbul on Saturday.

Deputy PM Numan Kurtulmus said initial findings pointed towards the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which has targeted security forces in the past.

At least 38 people died near Istanbul's Vodafone Arena when attackers struck after a top-division football match.

A car bomb hit a police vehicle and a suicide bomber blew himself up nearby.

Mr Numan told CNN Turk news channel that about 300-400kg (660-880lb) of explosives had been used in Saturday evening's attack.
