ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Four suicide bombers who killed more than 50 people in Istanbul over the past week were Turkish citizens, Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan says, as some in Turkey turned their anger on the United States.

Several thousand Turks gathered in Istanbul on Saturday and other cities to protest against the bombs and what some said was the underlying cause of the attacks -- the United States and NATO member Turkey's close links with the world's only superpower.

Speaking at the funeral of two police officers killed in attacks on Thursday, Erdogan said it was a matter of shame for Turkey that its own citizens were responsible.

Erdogan also reaffirmed Turkey's belief that the bombers had links with foreign groups.
