Islamic state has claimed the responsibility for the attack with a car-bomb in the southeast city of Diyarbak?r which killed 8 people and injured over a 100 on Friday, reported BNR.

Earlier, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Y?ld?r?m accused Kurdish rebels of the attack.

The car bomb attack was carried out after the arrest of 12 deputies from the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP).

The arrests resulted in the EU calling a meeting of the ambassadors of member-states in Ankara. Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, stated that Brussels is extremely concerned about the actions of Turkish authorities.

The USA is also disturbed by the arrests of Kurdish leaders, stated the spokesperson of the White House.

Secretary General of the UN Ban Ki-moon also expressed his concern about the arrests and the restrictions imposed on the media in Turkey.
