Plot fears

Last week, a court agreed to try more than 80 suspects - including two retired generals – who are allegedly linked to an ultra-nationalist plot to overthrow the government.

The suspects, from a group known as Ergenekon, are accused of planning a series of explosions and assassinations to create chaos in Turkey and force a military takeover meant to "save the republic".

Some wonder whether elements linked to that plot who are not yet in custody could be behind Sunday´s attack.

"If the country is out of control with no proper governance, if bombs explode here and there, then it´s impossible to know what might happen," mused Sedat Laciner of the think tank Usak.

"That might create the atmosphere for a coup, when they say ´forget the closure case, and the Ergenekon plot - the priority is security and the fight against terror.´"

PKK or otherwise, no hard evidence has yet been made public. But if this is the work of Kurdish rebels, commentators worry it may not be an isolated attack.

"This can mark the start of more unstable days," Mr Laciner says. "The PKK is carrying out more and more wild operations. The smaller they get, the more out of control they become."
