Blast hits south-eastern Turkish city of Diyarbakir, injuries reported

An explosion occurred on March 31 in the southeastern province of Diyarbakır near the city’s bus terminal during the passage of a police vehicle, the Hurriyet Daily News reports.

Ten people were wounded when an explosion hit a passing police vehicle in the southeastern Turkish city of Diyarbakir on Thursday, a security source said, according to Reuters.

Broadcaster Haberturk TV said the blast hit near a bus station in the city, the largest in the mainly Kurdish southeast. Ambulances rushed to the scene, Haberturk said.

The southeast has been scorched by waves of violence since a ceasefire between the militant Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) and the government collapsed last July.
