Two police officers were shot dead in the Turkish town of Ceylanpinar, close to the Syrian border, on Wednesday, the regional governor said.
Izzetin Kucuk, the region's governor, said the two officers died of bullet wounds, adding, "We don't yet know if there is a terrorist link," the BBC reported.
However, a short while later, the military wing of the outlawed Kurdistan Worker's Party (PKK) said it carried out the attack as a reprisal for the Suruc bombing, saying the officers cooperated with jihadis, Turkey's Hurriyet Daily News reported.
