Turkey's state media say anti-terrorism police detained dozens of individuals linked to a Kurdish opposition party in country-wide raids.

The reports did not specify whether the individuals detained were suspected of involvement in a Saturday bombing that killed at least 38 people and wounded 155 others.

The state-run news agency said at least 37 members of the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party, or HDP, were detained early Monday in Istanbul and the capital, Ankara.

The state-run television channel TRT reported similar raids, saying 58 were detained in the port city of Mersin and 51 in Sanliurfa in the southeast.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and other Turkish authorities accuse the HDP of having ties to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK.
