A car-bomb explosion in southeastern Turkey killed at least seven people and injured more than 20 on Monday, al-Jazeera reported.
The blast occurred outside a police station close to Diyarbakir, a city in Turkey’s restive southeast. Four police officers, and a child, were among the dead.
Local officials have pinned the attack on the separatist Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which the Turkish government identifies as a terrorist organization. The conflict between the group and the Turkish government, which began in the early 1980s, has recently escalated. Monday’s attack was the third in the past week to be blamed on the PKK.
