The newspaper did not reveal its source for the report, and because it is not possible to confirm 100%, and no claims have surfaced to indicate responsibility, it is not proper to label any particular group at this time.
Salih Necar, a Syrian national, has been identified as the bomber and he is thought to have entered Turkey with refugees from Syria.
His fingerprints were taken as he entered the country and police say they identified him by his prints at the site, Yeni Safak reported on its website.
It is claimed the car bombed in the attack was rented in western Turkey in Izmir about 2 weeks back.
A senior security source said initial signs indicated that Kurdish militants from the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) were responsible for the attack. — Reuters
