Just a week after the local elections in Turkey, the opposition leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu been attacked by a mob at the funeral of a soldier. One man struck Kilicdaroglu in the middle of the fight in Ankara province with a fist in his face, as was seen on Sunday on pictures.

Bodyguards tried to push back the enraged crowd and eventually brought the head of the largest opposition party CHP into a house. From there, Kilicdaroglu informed him that he was fine.

The crowd initially did not dissipate, Kilicdaroglu was, according to Turk media report brought out with an armored vehicle.

The exact background of the attack was initially unclear. The governor said on Twitter that the incident was under investigation. The spokesman of the Islamic-conservative ruling party AKP,  Omer Celik, condemned the act on Twitter.

The soldier and three other servicemen were on Saturday in battles with the Kurdish Workers Party classified as terrorist PKK killed near the Iraqi border.

President and AKP leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused head of the CHP and three other opposition parties before the local elections on 31 March, of cooperating with the PKK and “sending their followers into the communities”.

The AKP had lost the capital Ankara and the metropolis Istanbul in the local election to the CHP.

In Istanbul, CHP candidate Ikrem Imamoglu was declared mayor last week, but the decision on an AKP’s request for re-election is still pending.

Imamoglu thanked his followers for support at a major event in Istanbul’s Maltepe district on Sunday.
