ISTANBUL (Reuters) – A group connected with Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) guerrillas on Thursday claimed responsibility for a suicide bomb attack at the weekend in central Istanbul.

The Kurdistan Freedom Hawks (TAK) said on its website it had staged the attack, which wounded 32 people, at a police point at Istanbul’s Taksim Square as a “act of revenge.”

“We as TAK claim responsibility for the action carried out against the police force of Turkish fascism at Istanbul’s Taksim Square on Oct 31, 2010,” TAK said on its website.
