A Turkish soldier was killed and dozens injured today (April 12, 2016) in a truck bombing in Diyarbakir province in the southeast of the country, according to the Euro News website.
Thirty-nine soldiers and eight civilians were hurt in the explosion in the town of Hani, the military said.
The statement said a vehicle filled with explosives rammed into a police station.
Southeastern Turkey has been rocked by violence since a ceasefire between the Turkish government and the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) collapsed last year. Many Kurds live in this part of Turkey, where they have been attempting to have some territory of their own, in order to establish a Kurdish nation.
