Turkey: Police station attack leaves many wounded

Turkey’s state-run media reports say several ambulances have been dispatched following an explosion near the mainly-Kurdish city of Diyarbakir in southeast Turkey.

Initial reports say there are “many” hurt in the attack.

The Anadolu Agency says the explosion Monday was caused by a Kurdish rebel attack on a traffic police station near Diyarbakir.

Last week, a wave of attacks targeting Turkish police and soldiers in the mainly-Kurdish southeast region, including Diyarbakir, killed at least 12 people. Authorities blamed the attacks on the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK.
