Car Bomb Kills One, Wounds 17 In Turkey

At least one person has been killed, and a further 17 wounded, following a car bomb attack at a housing complex, in southeastern Turkey.

A car bomb exploded in the garden of a housing complex in Turkey’s southeastern town of Viransehir on Friday, killing a child and wounding 17 other people, the provincial governor’s office told Reuters.

Initial findings showed that an unidentified individual thought to be between 18 to 20 had parked the car loaded with explosives outside the complex in the evening hours, Sanliurfa governor Gungor Azim Tuna was quoted as saying by the state-run Anadolu agency.

“A terror attack was carried out as the car bomb was remotely detonated. The housing complex has been largely damaged,” Gungor was quoted as saying.
