AlJAZEERA reported, at least seven police officers were killed and 27 people wounded when a car bomb attack hit a police vehicle in Turkey’s Kurdish-dominated city of Diyarbakir in the southeast of the country, Turkish officials have said.
Security sources said the explosion took place near a busy bus terminal, injuring both police officers and civilians.
The blast damaged several cars and shattered almost all the windows of a nearby building.
The bombing came one day before a rare visit by Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu to Diyarbakir on Friday.
No one has yet claimed responsibility for the blast.
