Car Bomb Kills One, Wounds Two In Turkey

At least one person has been killed, and a further two wounded, following a car bomb attack, in southeastern Turkey.

A car bomb killed one civilian and wounded at least two soldiers when it exploded near a gendarmerie station in southeastern Turkish province of Mardin on Thursday, security sources said.

The explosion took place outside the gendarmerie outpost near the Omerli district of Mardin province and was carried out by Kurdish militant group PKK, sources said. The car bomb was detonated through remote control and killed a truck driver who was passing by.

The Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) have carried out similar attacks in Turkey’s major cities in the recent past as violence has spiralled since the ceasefire with the PKK collapsed almost a year ago.
