- Story Text: CCTV footage obtained by Reuters from a police officer who wanted to remain anonymous showed on Thursday (January 4) the moment of explosion in the Aegean coastal city of Izmir that killed a police officer and a courthouse employee.
Police shot dead two attackers after the car bombing outside a courthouse in the western Turkish city.
Provincial Governor Erol Ayyildiz said initial findings suggested the Kurdish PKK militant group was behind the blast.
Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Veysi Kaynak said a much larger attack was apparently being planned based on the weapons found at the scene. He also said the attack would not stop Turkey's military involvement in Syria and Iraq.
