ISTANBUL - The militant Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) claimed responsibility on Saturday for a suicide car bomb attack in central Turkey that killed one policeman, and media reports said the bombers had entered Turkey from Syria.

Four suspects have been detained in connection with the attack, Interior Minister Idris Naim Sahin told reporters.

Two militants set off a bomb inside their car near a police station at Pinarbasi in Turkey's central Kayseri province on Friday, killing themselves and one policeman and wounding 18 others.

A statement on a PKK website said Pinarbasi was the intended target and the bombing was a response to Turkish military attacks, rejecting Turkish media reports that the actual target was in the capital Ankara.

"We have seized four people. Their foreign links have been revealed," Sahin said.
