ISTANBUL (Reuters) - The Kurdistan Freedom Hawks (TAK), an offshoot of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militant group, said on Sunday it carried out a suicide bombing in the northwestern Turkish city of Bursa last week.

In a statement on its website, the group said one of its female members carried out the attack, which wounded eight people. It said she had detonated the explosives before reaching her intended target.
