Three Killed In Turkey Car Bomb

At least three people have been killed, following a car bombing, outside a police station, in southeast Turkey.

Two officers and one civilian were killed when a car bomb exploded outside a police station near Turkey’s southeastern city of Diyarbakir on Monday, in an attack suspected to have been carried out by Kurdish militants, security sources said.

Ambulances rushed to the scene, Dogan News Agency said. The area where the explosion hit is on a road between Diyarbakir and the district of Bismil, about 50 kilometers (31 miles) east, the security sources said.

Turkey’s southeast has seen some of the most intense fighting in decades after a ceasefire between the Turkish state and the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) collapsed in July 2015.

Thousands of militants, security force members and civilians have since been killed in fighting across the region.
