ISTANBUL: Fourteen Turkish soldiers were killed and dozens more wounded Saturday in a suicide car bombing blamed on Kurdish militants targeting off-duty conscripts, the latest in a string of attacks to rock Turkey in recent months.

The government said all signs so far suggested the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) was behind the bombing in the city of Kayseri, a usually calm industrial hub in the heart of Anatolia.

With tensions soaring in Turkey, nationalist protesters attacked the offices of the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) in Kayseri as well as seven other locations in Istanbul and across the country.
