Bomb attack leaves 3 dead, over 50 wounded in eastern Turkey


At least three people have been killed and more than 50 others wounded when a car bomb explosion ripped through the police headquarters in the troubled eastern province of Elazig, security sources say.

Deputy Mayor Mahmut Varol told Haber Turk television news network by telephone that the attack took place in the provincial capital city of Elazig, located 565 kilometers (351 miles) east of the capital, Ankara, on Thursday.

He added that a number of cars were parked near the police station caught fire following the act of violence.

No individual or militant group has yet claimed responsibility for the blast, but such incidents are often blamed on the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) militants.
