A police officer was killed and 10 people were wounded when a car bomb exploded near a passing police vehicle in the eastern Turkish province of Bingol on Sunday, security sources said.
The bomb, planted by militants from the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), was detonated near the district governor’s office, the security sources said. Six police officers were among the injured, they said.
Turkey’s largely Kurdish southeast has been hit by waves of violence since the collapse of a 2-1/2-year ceasefire between the state and the PKK in 2015. The autonomy-seeking PKK is considered a terrorist organisation by Turkey, the United States and Europe.
More than 40,000 people, most of them Kurds, have died in violence since the PKK first took up arms against the state three decades ago.
