Leftist group blamed for attacks in Turkey

Leftist group blamed for attacks in Turkey

Turkey's deputy prime says a banned leftist group that carried out a suicide bombing at the U.S. Embassy last month is believed to be behind simultaneous attacks on two government offices in the Turkish capital.
Assailants fired a rocket at Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's party headquarters and hurled two hand-grenades at the Justice Ministry's parking lot late Tuesday, wounding one person.
Bulent Arinc said Wednesday that preliminary findings by investigators point to the Revolutionary People's Liberation Party-Front, or DHKP-C. That group claimed responsibility for the U.S. Embassy bombing that killed a security guard.
