Car bomb attack in the Aegean province of Izmir

A car bomb attack in the Aegean province of İzmir near the Courthouse killed at least two people on Jan. 5, the İzmir Governor has announced.
Governor Erol Ayyıldız said one of the victims was a police officer while the other was an employee at the İzmir Courthouse, adding that around seven people were also wounded and two militants were killed. Police officer identified as Fethi Sekin apparently prevented an even bigger attack by noticing the bomb-laden car on time and intervening. According to Ayyıldız, another car was also detonated near the scene. Ayyıldız also said initial findings suggested that the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) was responsible for the attack, but in the end the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) had claimed responsibility for the attack.
