STANBUL - A group connected to Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) guerrillas claimed responsibility on Thursday for a car bomb that killed three people in central Ankara and it threatened more attacks on Turkish cities.

The Kurdistan Freedom Hawks (TAK) said in a statement that Tuesday's attack on the capital was the "beginning of a series of attacks".It also said it was behind a recent attack in Antalya, on the Mediterranean coast, where several tourists were wounded by a small explosion on a beach.

"We, as TAK, claim responsibility for actions in Ankara and Antalya," the statement said. "Big Turkish cities will be our main targets."
