In the statement on its website, PKK said the attack was in retaliation for the "lack of information" about its jailed leader Abdullah Ocalan.
It also admitted to mastermind another attack a day earlier in the northeast, targeting the convoy of Kemal Kilicdaroglu, leader of the Republican People's Party, but said said it did not deliberately target the leader of Turkey's main opposition party.
