Erdogan says 14 arrested after Ankara bombing

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says 14 suspects have been arrested in connection with Wednesday's terrorist attack in Ankara and that the number will likely rise.

He stresses that the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) and its armed wing, the People's Protection Forces (YPG), were responsible, despite denials from the Kurdish groups.

Erdogan says that even if the leaders of the PKK and PYD say the attack has nothing to do with them, evidence and documents from the intelligence services and Interior Ministry point to their involvement.
