At least 8 dead, dozens wounded in Turkey blast

A car bomb at a police headquarters in Turkey’s largely Kurdish southeast killed at least eight and wounded dozens on Friday (August 26), officials said, two days after Turkey launched an incursion against Islamic State and Kurdish militia fighters in Syria.

The state-run Anadolu news agency blamed the attack on the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), a militant group which has waged a three-decade insurgency for Kurdish autonomy and has been involved in almost daily clashes with security forces since a ceasefire collapsed more than a year ago.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
