Three people killed by car bomb in Turkey's southeast
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 15 - 08 - 2016

DIYARBAKIR — A child and two police officers were killed by a car bomb outside a police station in southeastern Turkey on Monday, the provincial governor said, blaming the attack on Kurdish militants.
Twenty-five people, eight of them police, were wounded in the attack, on a busy road between the city of Diyarbakir and the district of Bismil, a statement from Diyarbakir governor's office said.
The blast blew out the police station's windows and left the building's twisted metal frame exposed through the concrete and its roof partially collapsed, footage on CNN Turk television showed. It left a crater in the ground outside.
Turkey's southeast has seen some of the most intense fighting in decades since a ceasefire between the Turkish state and the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) collapsed in July 2015.
Monday marks the anniversary of the PKK taking up arms against the state in 1984. The group, which wants autonomy for Turkey's Kurds, is designated a terrorist organisation by Turkey, the European Union and the United States.
The PKK launched its insurgency 32 years ago with simultaneous attacks on security forces in the southeastern towns of Eruh and Semdinli on Aug. 15. More than 40,000 people - militants, security forces and civilians - have been killed since.
A broadcast ban was imposed on media coverage of the bombing to try to stop information important to the investigation from being spread, an official at the governor's office said.
