Report: 2 injured in small bomb blasts in Turkey

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) -

A news agency says assailants have hurled small bombs at Turkey's Justice Ministry and the headquarters of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's ruling party, wounding two people.

   The private Dogan news agency says police detained two people suspected of involvement in Tuesday's simultaneous attacks in the capital, Ankara.

   There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blasts, which follow a police crackdown on suspected members of a banned left-wing militant group.

   Kurdish rebels and Islamic militants have also carried out bomb attacks in Turkey.
