AK Party condemns attack against Kilicdaroglu

Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) officials condemned the attack against Main Opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) Chairman Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu and wished him a speedy recovery.

"We condemn all types of violence," party spokesman Ömer Çelik said, adding that the perpetrators will be found and held accountable for their crime.

Turkey's Justice Minister Abdülhamit Gül also condemned the attack, saying that they will not allow violence to cast a shadow on politics, Daily Sabah reported.

Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) Chairman Devlet Bahçeli said it was "impossible" to be comfortable with the attack against Kılıçdaroğlu.

Kılıçdaroğlu was attacked by a group of men during the funeral of a fallen soldier in Ankara yesterday.
