Thirteen soldiers have been killed and 48 more injured when a car bomb hit a bus transporting off-duty military personnel in the central Turkish city of Kayseri, one week after a twin bombing targeted police in Istanbul.

The blast is likely to further anger a Turkish public frustrated by a string of deadly bombings this year, several of which have been claimed by Kurdish militants, including last week’s, which killed 44 and wounded more than 150.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the blast, but Deputy Prime Minister Veysi Kaynak likened the attack to last Saturday’s dual bombings outside the stadium of Istanbul soccer team Besiktas, which was later claimed by an offshoot of the militant Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).
