Car Bomb Rocks City of Diyarbakir in S.E.Turkey; At Least Eight Killed and 100 Wounded by Attack

A car bomb rocked the southeastern Turkish city of Diyarbakir today (November 4, 2016), killing at least eight people and wounding more than 100 others, the Euro News website reports.

It came just hours after police detained several politicians of the Kurdish region's biggest party.

The blast struck a central area, near a police station where some of the Kurdish party leaders were being held in a terrorism probe.

It tore off facades of buildings and firefighters were searching debris for people trapped there. The Kurdistan Workers Party -- or PKK -- is believed to be responsible for today's attack.
