2 Turkish Police Officers Killed Near Syria Border

Two Turkish police were found dead on Wednesday in the southeastern town of Ceylanpinar close to the Syrian border, two days after a deadly suicide bombing in the same region, the local governor said.
 It was not immediately clear if the attack had “terrorist connections,” Turkish television quoted the governor of Sanliurfa region, Izzettin Kucuk, as saying, Middle East Eye reported.
Kucuk said the police had been found dead in an apartment building. The Hurriyet daily reported both had been shot in the head.
At least one of the officers worked for an anti-terrorism task force, the AA agency said.
The killings came two days after a suicide bombing in the town of Suruc, also in Sanliurfa, that claimed 32 lives. It has been blamed on IS militants.
Turkey’s Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said the authorities have identified Monday’s bomber, who is thought to have had links with IS.
