Turkey Car Bomb Kills 6 at Police HQ

Turkish officials said a car bomb exploded at a police headquarters in southeastern Turkey on Thursday and left six people dead, including a woman and a baby. Rescue teams were working to find survivors among the rubble in the Cinar district in Diyarbakir province. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but officials blamed the explosion on Kurdistan Workers Party (or PKK) militants, who are active in the mainly Kurdish province. The bomb reportedly detonated near the entrance of the police complex, but damaged neighboring residential buildings, where the mother and baby were killed. Attackers reportedly then fired rockets at the headquarters following the blast. A second police station in the nearby Mardin province was also attacked by militants, Turkish media reported. No casualties were reported in that separate attack.
