Third victim of Turkey election rally attack dies
PM Ahmet Davutoglu said one suspect had been arrested over the attack and was being checked for links to militant groups
The death toll from an attack on a rally of Turkey's pro-Kurdish People's Democratic Party (HDP) rose to three on Monday, when a 17-year old teenager died from his wounds, medical sources and the Dogan news agency said.
Friday's attack on an HDP pre-election rally in Diyarbakir, caused by a bomb stuffed with ball bearings, was one of several against the party in the campaign.
Severely wounded Civan Arslan, 17, succumbed to his injuries in a Diyarbakir hospital, Dogan said. Over 100 more were also wounded.
Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said one suspect had been arrested over the attack and was being checked for links to militant groups but has given no further details.
The HDP in Sunday's legislative election won 13 percent of the vote and 80 seats, a result hailed as a historic breakthrough for a Kurdish political force in Turkey.
