A car bomb was detonated near a high school in Ankara, Turkey Tuesday, killing three people and wounding 34 others.
Officials said the parked car was purchased a week ago, but wasn't registered yet. Police detained a woman at the scene who shouted "long live our struggle!" as she was escorted away.
"The explosion occurred in a place where car and people traffic is intense. It looks like the intention was to inflict as much harm to people as possible," Interior Minister Idris Naim Sahin said.
Kurdish rebels fighting for autonomy in southeastern Turkey have recently escalated their attacks.
Islamist and leftist militants have also carried out some bombings against the NATO member and U.S. ally.
