The military wing of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) said on Wednesday it killed two Turkish police officers in a town on the Syrian border as a reprisal for a suicide bombing blamed on jihadists that killed 32.
"A punitive action was carried out... in revenge for the massacre in Suruc," the People's Defence Forces (HPG) said in a statement on its website, accusing the officers of cooperating with jihadists.
Two police officers were found shot dead at their home in the town of Ceylanpinar on the border with Syria, two days after the Suruc suicide attack blamed on Islamic State jihadists.
