Kurdish separatist group PKK rejected accusations from Turkey's secularist opposition group that it had anything to do with two blasts that killed 17. A Kurdish politician said the bombs looked like the work of Ergenekon, a secular group that promotes a radical Kemalist agenda. Just hours after the blast, Ankara's Constitutional Court began hearing a case against Turkey's ruling party, AKP. Another court case opened against former generals accused of plotting with Ergenekon to overthrow the government. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke about the need to reach across the aisle and correct mistakes he had made.
