Kurd group responsible for Istanbul blast; 1 dead

A Kurdish militant group claimed responsibility for a bomb blast near a bus stop in Istanbul Friday that killed one person and injured 13 others, calling the attack retaliation for the killings of Kurds in southeastern Turkey. The Kurdistan Freedom Falcons, a small militant group, also said the bomb attack was "a warning" and vowed that it would "turn Turkey into hell" if violence in the southeast were not ended.
